Oh! thou who are greatly mad, deign to spare me who am less mad.
  [Lat., O major tandem parcas, insane, minori.]
      - Satires (II, 3, 326) [Insanity]

One goes to the right, the other to the left; both are wrong, but in different directions.
  [Lat., Ille sinistrorsum hic dexrorsum abit, unus utrique
    Error, sed variis illudit partibus.]
      - Satires (II, 3, 50) [Error]

I teach that all are men are mad.
  [Lat., Doceo insanire omnes.]
      - Satires (II, 3, 81) [Insanity]

For everything divine and human, virtue, fame, and honor, now obey the alluring influence of riches.
  [Lat., Omnis enim res,
    Virtus, fama, decus, divina, humanaque pulchris
      Divitiis parent.]
      - Satires (II, 3, 94) [Wealth]

Noble descent and worth, unless united with wealth, are esteemed no more than seaweed.
  [Lat., Et genus et virtus, nisi cum re, vilior alga est.]
      - Satires (II, 5, 8) [Wealth]

The man is either mad or his is making verses.
  [Lat., Aut insanit homo, aut versus facit.]
      - Satires (II, 7, 117) [Poets]

Thou oughtest to know, since thou livest near the gods.
  [Lat., Scire, deos quoniam propius contingis, oportet.]
      - Satires (XXI, 6, 52) [Gods]

If you'd dip in such joys, come--the better, the quicker!--
  But remember the fee--for it suits not my ends
    To let you make havoc, scot free, with my liquor.
      As though I were one of your heavy-pursed friends.
      - To Vergil (bk. IV, ode XII),
        (translated by Theo. Martin) [Drinking]
