Through chances various, through all vicissitudes, we make our way. –Aeneid
Proverbs 3: 13-19—
Happy he who has found wisdom,
and the man who has acquired understanding;
for wisdom is more profitable than silver,
and the gain she bring is better than gold.
She is more precious than red coral,
and all your jewels are no match for her.
Long life is in her right hand, in her left hand are riches and honour.
Her ways are pleasant ways and all her paths lead to prosperity.
She is a staff of life to all who grasp her,
and those who hold her fast are safe.
