TITUS CAIUS SILIUS ITALICUS
Roman poet and politician
(25 - 101)

Brave men ought not to be cast down by adversity.
      - [Adversity]

It is noble and so regarded both among nations and individuals to keep faith in adversity.
      - [Adversity]

Virtue herself is her own fairest reward.
  [Lat., Ipsa quidem virtus sibimet pulcherrima merces.]

    Desidiae virtus paullatim evicta senescit.]
      - Punica (III, 580) [Idleness]

Adversity tries men; but virtue struggles after fame regardless of the adverse heights.

    Nititur ad laudem virtus interrita clivo.]
      - Punica (IV, 605) [Virtue]

Away with delay; the change of great fortune is short-lived.
  [Lat., Pelle moras; brevis est magni fortuna favoris.]

The wheel of time rolls downward through various changes.
  [Lat., Per varios praeceps casus rota volvitur aevi.]
