What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.
Other men's sins are before our eyes; our own are behind our backs.
Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.

The person you are matters more than the place to which you go.

Shame may restrain what law does not prohibit.
It is the superfluous things for which men sweat.

I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good.
Man is a reasoning Animal.
