“The fool thinks they are wise, but the wise person knows themselves to be a fool. Modest doubt is the beacon of the wise. There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your philosophy.”
“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. Notice how far the little candle throws its beams! So shines a good and kind deed in this weary world.”
“There are some who say that to love thyself is a sin, but it is not so great a one as to neglect thyself.”
“Virtue is bold, goodness is never fearful — while no legacy is so rich as honesty. To be an honest friend, as this world goes, is like one picked out of ten thousand.”
“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them. But all know this: to do a great right, we must often do a little wrong.”
“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. And therefore is the winged Cupid painted blind. They who do not love are those who do not show their love.”
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. It is not the stars that hold our destiny, but ourselves.”
“Cowards die many times before their deaths. But the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that people should fear death, seeing that death is a necessary end, and will come when it comes.”
