There are as many opinions as there are people: to each his own custom.

[Quot homines, tot sententiæ: suo quoque mos.]

Terence (186?-159 BC) African-Roman dramatist [Publius Terentius Afer]
Phormio, Act ii, sc. 4, l.14 (l. 454)

Alt trans.:

  • "There are as many opinions as there are people: everyone has their own way of doing things."
  • "So many men, so many opinions: to each his own way."
  • "As many men, so many minds; every one his own way."
