Quintus Curtius Rufus
  A cowardly cur barks more fiercely than it bites.  1
  Despair is a great incentive to honorable death.  2
  Fear makes men believe the worst.  3
  For my own part I am persuaded that everything advances by an unchangeable law through the eternal constitution and association of latent causes, which have been long before predestinated.  4
  Habit is stronger than nature.  5
  It is often a comfort in misfortune to know our own fate.  6
  Nature has placed nothing so high that virtue cannot reach it.  7
  Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule.  8
  Nothing is strong that may not be endangered even by the weak.  9
  Posterity pays for the sins of their fathers.  10
  When the truth cannot be clearly made out, what is false is increased through fear.  11
