I saw these quotations which were engraved on Kingston – on –Thames Bridge, which is a few miles upstream from London.
They are said to be Roman, and are a reminder of the Roman occupation of England 43 – 410 AD
‘Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you’
‘Yield not to misfortunes, but advance all the more boldly against them’.
This shows that there were motivational coaches even then.
