Although modesty is natural to man, it is not natural to children. Modesty only begins with the knowledge of evil.
Jean Jacques Rousseau

Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
Every man has the right to risk his own life in order to preserve it. Has it ever been said that a man who throws himself out the window to escape from a fire is guilty of suicide?
Civilization is a hopeless race to discover remedies for the evils it produces.
All of my misfortunes come from having thought too well of my fellows.
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
Do not judge, and you will never be mistaken.
