Famous quotes containing the word century:
why do you waste your time
on childish things alone?
Clothe yourself in anger.
and cast off this honesty
toward your lover.
When her girlfriends
gave her such advice,
her face frightened,
The lord of my breath
is still in my heart.
No doubt hell hear you.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“Invite your friend to a feast, but leave your enemy alone; and especially invite the one who lives near you.”
—Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
