What is sweeter than lettered ease?
All pain is either severe or slight, if slight, it is easily endured; if severe, it will without doubt be brief.
Hours and days and months and years go by; the past returns no more, and what is to be we cannot know; but whatever the time gives us in which we live, we should therefore be content.
Few are those who wish to be endowed with virtue rather than to seem so.
They who say that we should love our fellow-citizens but not foreigners, destroy the universal brotherhood of mankind, with which benevolence and justice would perish forever.
No power is strong enough to be lasting if it labors under the weight of fear.
