Solon

A boy who is still a child grows baby teeth and loses them all in seven years. When God makes him fourteen, the signs of maturity begin to shine on his body. In the third seven, limbs growing, chin bearded, his skin acquires the color of manhood. In the fourth age a man is at a peak in strength—a sign in man of excellence. The time is ripe in the fifth for a young man to think of marriage and of offspring. In the sixth the mind of man is trained in all things; he doesn't try the impossible. In the seventh and eighth, that is, fourteen years, he speaks most eloquently in his life. He can still do much in the ninth but his speech and thought are discernibly less keen, and if he makes the full measure of ten sevens, when death comes, it will not come too soon.
Solon
The power of hail and snow springs from a cloud, and thunder from the fire of lightning. Strong men destroy a city, and a tyrant enslaves people through their ignorance. A ship once out of port is hard to capture: know this now before it is too late.
Solon
No mortal is happy, and all men on earth who look upon the sun are wretched.
Solon
Grant me from the blessed gods prosperity, and] from all mankind the possession ever of good repute; and that I may thus be a delight to my friends, and an affliction to my foes, but the first revered], by the other beheld with dread.
Solon
That city in which those who are not wronged, no less than those who are wronged, exert themselves to punish the wrongdoers.
Solon
Power proves the man.
Solon
Count no man happy until the end is known.
Solon
Many bad men are rich, many good men are poor; but we shall not exchange wealth for honour, for money flits from man to man but honour abides forever.
Solon
Count no man happy until he be dead.
Solon
The answer of Solon to the question 'Which is the most perfect popular government? That where the least injury done to the meanest individual, is considered as an insult on the whole constitution.
Solon
Reprove thy friend privately: commend him publicly.
Solon
If all our misfortunes were laid in one common heap, whence every one must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart.
Solon
The New Dimension is peaceful, and all work here just as they do on Earth. It’s a place where learning, knowledge and wisdom are essential to that work. It is not corrupt like the Earth Plane, and there they are free from all of the corruption that exists on Earth today. We created this New Dimension for growing and learning, as we did Earth. Minds here are advanced, as the knowledge that was acquired on Earth is now attuned to the minds of New Dimension souls. It is a slow process for all souls’ minds to learn and absorb knowledge and wisdom. Love is the answer for all kinds of souls to advance in the Universe. Through love, knowledge and wisdom are well earned. Critical thinking, the Earth Plane has gotten off track, forgetting or ignoring this most important key to progress. We all here in the Universe is working so hard with Earth souls to remind them that their purpose on Earth is to advance. First, they must love themselves if they are going to love all of those around them, if they are going to love other souls, if they are going to help less fortunate souls with love and kindness. All of this is part of Earth lessons they must learn. Once this is understood, we will attain peace of soul and mind… Progress is all that matters in the Universe!
Solon
In giving advice seek to help, not to please, your friend.
Solon
No more good must be attempted than the nation can bear.
Solon
You hide from your misfortunes. But if you knew what other people suffered, then you would not complain about your own.
Seek to learn constantly while you live; do not wait in the faith that old age by itself will bring wisdom.
