Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Jean Paul Richter (1763 - 1825)

Men, like bullets, go farthest when they are smoothest.
What a father says to his children is not heard by the world, but it will be heard by posterity.
What Cicero said of men-that they are like wines, age souring the bad, and bettering the good-we can say of misfortune, that it has the same effect upon them.
Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time.
Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good; try to use ordinary situations.
Only actions give life strength; only moderation gives it charm.
A man never shows his own character so plainly as by his manner of portraying another's.
