Chilo Quotes

Greek sage

As the touchstone tries gold, so gold tries men.

Be more prompt to go to a friend in adversity than in prosperity.

Prefer loss before unjust gain: for that brings grief but once; this forever.

Prefer loss to the wealth of dishonest gain; the former vexes you for a time; the latter will bring you lasting remorse.
