It may be you fear more to deliver judgment upon me than I fear judgment.

There is in the universe neither center nor circumference.
If the first button of one's coat is wrongly buttoned, all the rest will be crooked.

Magicians can do more by means of faith than physicians by the truth.

I who am in the night will move into the day.
