Athenaeus
Every investigation which is guided by principles of Nature fixes its ultimate aim entirely on gratifying the stomach.
Athenaeus quotes
Goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness.
Athenaeus
It was a saying of Demetrius Phalereus, that "Men having often abandoned what was visible for the sake of what was uncertain, have not got what they expected, and have lost what they had,óbeing unfortunate by an enigmatical sort of calamity."




Athenaeus quotes
