I have taken all knowledge to by my province.
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake...
He that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils.
We are much beholden to Machiavel and others, that write what men do, and not what they ought to do.
We think according to nature. We speak according to rules. We act according to custom.
Virtue is like a rich stone, best plain set.
