Charm is a product of the unexpected.
Like bones to the human body, the axle to the wheel, the wing to the bird, and the air to the wing, so is liberty the essence of life. Whatever is done without it is imperfect.
Men of action, above all those whose actions are guided by love, live forever.
It is terrible to speak of you, Liberty, for one who lives without you.
Only those who spread treachery, fire, and death out of hatred for the prosperity of others are undeserving of pity.
Other famous men, those of much talk and few deeds, soon evaporate. Action is the dignity of greatness.
