Quotes by Solon

Speech is the mirror of action.
Let no man be called happy before his death. Till then, he is not happy, only lucky.
Society is well governed when its people obey the magistrates, and the magistrates obey the law.
No man is happy; he is at best fortunate.
Call no man happy until he is dead, but only lucky.
Learn to obey before you command.
I grow old learning something new every day.
Rich people without wisdom and learning are but sheep with golden fleeces.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
In giving advice seek to help, not to please, your friend.
Call no man happy before he dies, he is at best but fortunate.
