Ovid


Roman poet known to the English-speaking world as Ovid, wrote on topics of love, abandoned women, and mythological transformations.
Ovid
Video meliora, proboque, deteriora sequor.
Ovid quotes
Medio tutissimus ibis.
Ovid
Note too that a faithful study of the liberal arts humanizes character and permits it not to be cruel.




Ovid quotes
Pure women are only those who have not been asked.
Ovid
Fas est et ab hoste doceri.
Ovid quotes
In the winter season,
For seven days of calm, Alcyone
Broods over her nest on the surface of the waters
While the sea-waves are quiet. Through this time
Aeolus keeps his winds at home, and ocean
Is smooth for his descendants' sake.
Ovid
Then the omnipotent Father with his thunder made Olympus tremble, and from Ossa hurled Pelion.
Ovid quotes
Nocte latent mendae, vitioque ignoscitur omni, Horaque formosam quamlibet illa facit.
Ovid
Chaos, rudis indigestaque moles.
Ovid
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be fish.
Ovid
Poetry comes fine-spun from a mind at peace.




Ovid quotes
It is the mind that makes the man, and our vigour is in our immortal soul.
Ovid
Qui nolet fieri desidiosus, amet!
Ovid quotes
Iam seges est ubi Troia fuit.
Ovid
Exitus acta probat.
Ovid quotes
Ut ameris, amabilis esto.
Ovid
So long as you are secure you will count many friends; if your life becomes clouded you will be alone.
Ovid quotes
Expedit esse deos, et, ut expedit, esse putemus.
Ovid
Nothing is stronger than habit.
Ovid
Inopem me copia fecit.
