A man's as miserable as he thinks he is.
All cruelty springs from weakness.
All your sorrows have been wasted on you if you have not yet learned how to be wretched.
A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.
A person's fears are lighter when the danger is at hand.
All art is but imitation of nature.
A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand.
A great mind becomes a great fortune.
An unpopular rule is never long maintained.
