All cruelty springs from weakness.
A large part of mankind is angry not with the sins, but with the sinners.
A king is one who fears nothing.
A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.
A man's as miserable as he thinks he is.
A kingdom founded on injustice never lasts.
