As freely as the firmament embraces the world, or the sun pours forth impartially his beams, so mercy must encircle both friend and foe.
Opposition inflames the enthusiast, never converts him.
Peace is rarely denied to the peaceful.
When faced with a mountain, I will not quit! I will keep on striving until I climb over, find a pass through, tunnel underneath - or simply stay and turn the mountain into a gold mine, with God's help!
A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.
With stupidity the gods themselves struggle in vain.
Great souls suffer in silence.
One can advise comfortably from a safe port.
Truth exists for the wise, beauty for the feeling heart.
