Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
Living is not breathing but doing.
Everything is good when it leaves the hands of the Creator; everything degenerates in the hands of man.
Good laws lead to the making of better ones; bad ones bring about worse.
The person who has lived the most is not the one with the most years but the one with the richest experiences.
The body politic, like the human body, begins to die from its birth, and bears in itself the causes of its destruction.
Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.
