It is easier to be a lover than a husband for the simple reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day than to say pretty things from time to time.

Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.
Cruelty and fear shake hands together.
Behind every great fortune there is a crime.
All human power is a compound of time and patience.
An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man's entire existence.
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.
