Whatever begins, also ends.
A person's fears are lighter when the danger is at hand.
Crime when it succeeds is called virtue.
Every guilty person is his own hangman.
The first and greatest punishment of the sinner is the conscience of sin.
He is most powerful who governs himself.
You cannot escape necessities, but you can overcome them.
It is quality rather than quantity that matters.
Just as I shall select my ship when I am about to go on a voyage, or my house when I propose to take a residence, so I shall choose my death when I am about to depart from life.
Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?
As long as you live, keep learning how to live.
