Good Advice in Latin

Something for a Friday, I think. I found in a book recently:

Ut amēris, amēbilis estō!

In order to be loved, be lovable!

Ovid, Ars Amãtõria, II, 107

Seems like good advice to me, in any language. 😉

People like to blame external reasons for their problems but oftentimes we have responsibility too. We can’t change life around us, but we can control how we interact with it.
