Do I dare set forth here the most important, the most useful rule of all education? It is not to save time, but to squander it.
Jean Jacques Rousseau
Civilization is a hopeless race to discover remedies for the evils it produces.
Days of absence, sad and dreary, Clothed in sorrow's dark array, Days of absence, I am weary; She I love is far away.
Although modesty is natural to man, it is not natural to children. Modesty only begins with the knowledge of evil.
A feeble body weakens the mind.
Do not judge, and you will never be mistaken.
Good laws lead to the making of better ones; bad ones bring about worse.
Base souls have no faith in great individuals.
Fame is but the breath of people, and that often unwholesome.
