Wisdom from Publilius Syrus

Publilius Syrus, was a Latin writer, best known for his sententiae. He was a Syrian who was brought as a slave to Italy, but by his wit and talent he won the favor of his master, who freed and educated him.

Three of my favorite quotes are:

  • I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
  • Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
  • To do two things at once is to do neither.
