When there is no peril in the fight there is no glory in the triumph.
He who is hated by all can not expect to live long.
To win without risk is to triumph without glory.
The crime and not the scaffold makes the shame.
Here honor binds me, and I wish to satisfy it.
He who allows himself to be insulted deserves to be so; and insolence, if unpunished, increases.
Guess, if you can, and choose, if you dare.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
To myself alone do I owe my fame.
He who does not fear death cares naught for threats.
