No one will dare maintain that it is better to do injustice than to bear it.
Now a whole is that which has a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Obstinate people can be divided into the opinionated, the ignorant, and the boorish.
Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.
Man, when perfected, is the best of animals, but, when separated from law and justice, he is the worst of all.
Memory is the scribe of the soul.
