Ten soldiers wisely led will beat a hundred without a head.
Joint undertakings stand a better chance when they benefit both sides.
Some wisdom you must learn from one who's wise.
Fortune truly helps those who are of good judgment.
Do not plan for ventures before finishing what's at hand.
Danger gleams like sunshine to a brave man's eyes.
Chance fights ever on the side of the prudent.
Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.
Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes angry.
The greatest pleasure of life is love.
