Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.

Help yourself, and Heaven will help you.
No favor can win gratitude from a cat.
A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
What is denominated discretion in man we call cunning in brutes.
Any one entrusted with power will abuse it if not also animated with the love of truth and virtue, no matter whether he be a prince, or one of the people.
By the work one knows the workman.
Everyone believes very easily whatever they fear or desire.
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred.
