James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Metastasio
 
  An old warrior is never in haste to strike the blow.  1
  Compose thy mind, and prepare thy soul calmly to obey; such offering will be more acceptable to God than every other sacrifice.  2
  High birth is an accident, not a virtue.  3
  Non è ver che sia la morte / Il peggior di tutti i mali; / E un sollievo pei mortali / Che non stanchi di soffrir—Death is not, in fact, the worst of all evils; when it comes, it is a relief to those who are worn out with suffering.  4
