The superior man thinks always of virtue; the common man thinks of comfort.

Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
Silence is a friend who will never betray.
Sincerity and truth are the basis of every virtue.
In antiquity men studied for their own sake; nowadays men study for the sake of impressing others.
If I do not participate in the sacrifice, it is as if I did not sacrifice at all.
To see what is right and not to do it, is want of courage.
Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.

In vain I have looked for a single man capable of seeing his own faults and bringing the charge home against himself.
He that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
