Quotes: moderation in all things; Govern your tongue before all other things, following the gods; The wind blowing, adore the sound; Assist a man in raising a burden; but do not assist him in laying it down; Speak not about Pythagoric concerns without LIGHT; Having departed from your house, turn not back, for the furies will be your attendants; Nourish a cock, but sacrifice it not; for it is sacred to the sun and moon; Receive not a swallow into your house; Offer not your right hand easily to anyone; When rising from the bedclothes, roll them together, and obliterate the impression of the body;
