Dicta Thaletis Milesii

Principem honora. Τὸν κρατοῦντα τίμα.
Amicos probato. Δοκίμαζε φίλους.
Similis tui sis. Ὅμοιος σαυτῷ γίνου.
Nemini promittito. Ἐπαγγέλλου μηδενί.
Quod adest, boni consulito. Τὸ παρὸν εὖ ποίει.
A vitiis abstineto. Κακίας ἀπέχου.
Gloriam sectare. Δόξαν δίωκε.
Vitae curam age. Ἐπιμελοῦ βίου.
Pacem dilige. Εἰρήνην ἀγάπα.
Laudatus esto apud omnes. Ἐπαινοῦ παρὰ πᾶσι.
Susurronem ex aedibus ejice. Ψίθυρον ἄνδρα ἔκβαλε σῆς οἰκίας.

From Opuscula graecorum veterum sententiosa et moralia, p. 150-1
