Behind every great fortune there is a crime.
Honore de Balzac (1799 - 1850)

All human power is a compound of time and patience.
An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man's entire existence.
Vocations which we wanted to pursue, but didn't, bleed, like colors, on the whole of our existence.
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
There are no little events with the heart. It magnifies everything; it places in the same scales the fall of an empire of fourteen years and the dropping of a woman's glove, and almost always the glove weighs more than the empire.
Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless.
The house is turned entirely upside down when the hen crows and the cock is silent.
The more one judges, the less one loves.
Numbers are intellectual witnesses that belong only to mankind.
