DIONYSIUS CATO
Latin moralist
(1st, 2nd or 3rd century)

Patiently bear the burden of poverty.
  [Lat., Paupertatis onus patienter ferre memento.]
      - Disticha (lib. I, 21) [Poverty]

Let nothing pass which will advantage you;
  Hairy in front, Occasion's bald behind.
    [Lat., Rem tibi quam nosces aptam dimittere noli;
      Fronte capillata, post est occasio calva.]
      - Disticha de Moribus (II) [Opportunity]

The same words conceal and declare the thoughts of men.
  [Lat., Sermo hominum mores et celat et indicat idem.]
      - Disticha de Moribus ad Filium (bk. IV, 26)
        [Speech]
