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

Beware, as long as you live, of judging people by appearances.

Patience and time do more than strength or passion.
He knows the universe and does not know himself.
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.
