„Here profits not
To tell the whole truth with clear face unveiled.
Often is man's best wisdom to be silent.“

—  Pindar
Context: Here profits not To tell the whole truth with clear face unveiled. Often is man's best wisdom to be silent. Nemean 5, line 16-8; page 222. (483 BC?)

„For words
Live longer down the years than deeds.“

—  Pindar
Context: For words Live longer down the years than deeds. Nemean 4, line 6; page 213. (473 BC?)

„Creatures of a day! What is a man?
What is he not? A dream of a shadow
Is our mortal being.“

—  Pindar
Context: Creatures of a day! What is a man? What is he not? A dream of a shadow Is our mortal being. But when there comes to men A gleam of splendour given of Heaven, Then rests on them a light of glory And blesséd are their days. Pythian 8, line 95-8; pages 162-3. (446 BC)

„War is sweet to those who have no experience of it,
but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach.“

—  Pindar
Context: War is sweet to those who have no experience of it, but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach. Fragment 110; page 377. Variant translations: This phrase is the origin of the Latin proverb "Dulce bellum inexpertis" which is sometimes misattributed to Desiderius Erasmus‎. War is sweet to them that know it not. War is sweet to those not acquainted with it War is sweet to those who do not know it. War is sweet to those that never have experienced it. War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it.
