Solon
 
  Chide a friend in private and praise him in public.  1
  He that will sell his fame will also sell the public interest.  2
  Honors achieved far exceed those that are created.  3
  If all men would bring their misfortunes together in one place, most would be glad to take his own home again, rather than to take a proportion out of the common stock.  4
  No fool can be silent at a feast.  5
  No one can be said to be happy until he is dead.  6
  Reprove thy friend privately; commend him publicly.  7
  Rich men without wisdom and learning are called sheep with golden fleeces.  8
  Satiety comes of riches and contumaciousness of satiety.  9
  Society is well governed when the people obey the magistrates, and the magistrates the laws.  10
  To make an empire durable, the magistrates must obey the laws, and the people the magistrates.  11
  True blessedness consisteth in a good life and & happy death.  12
  What thou seest, speak of with caution.  13
