Suffer women once to arrive at an equality with you, and they will from that moment become your superiors.
Emas, non quod opus est, sed quod necesse est: quod non opus est, asse carum est. [Buy not what you can use, but what you cannot do without. What you do not need is dear at any price.]
~ quoted by Seneca in Epistulae, xciv, 28
Fures privatorum in nervo atque in compedibus aetatem agunt; Fures publici in auro atque in purpura. [Those who steal from private individuals spend their lives in stocks and chains; those who steal from the public treasure go dressed in gold and purple.”
~ in Praeda militibus dividenda
