VALERIUS MAXIMUS
Roman historian
(c. 1st century)

I would appeal to Philip, she said, but to Philip sober.
  [Lat., Provocarem ad Phillippum, inquit, sed sobrium.]
      - bk. VI, II, ext. 1 [Drinking]

He (Solon) considered that no one ought to be called happy as long as he was alive.
  [Lat., Neminem, dum adhuc viveret, beatum dici debere arbitrabatur.]
      - bk. VII, 2, ext. 2 [Happiness]

He [Xenocrates] said that he had often repented speaking, but never of holding his tongue.
  [Lat., Dixisse me, inquit, aliquando poentuit, tacuisse nunquam.]
      - bk. VII, 2, ext. 7 [Silence]

The divine wrath is slow indeed in vengeance, but it makes up for its tardiness by the severity of the punishment.
  [Lat., Lento quidem gradu ad vindictam divina procedit ira, sed tarditatem supplicii gravitate compensat.]
      - I, 1, 3 [Retribution]
