Base souls have no faith in great individuals.
Jean Jacques Rousseau
Free people, remember this maxim: we may acquire liberty, but it is never recovered if it is once lost.
Good laws lead to the making of better ones; bad ones bring about worse.
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?
Force does not constitute right... obedience is due only to legitimate powers.
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
Days of absence, sad and dreary, Clothed in sorrow's dark array, Days of absence, I am weary; She I love is far away.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
