When desire dies, fear is born.
Hope is a great falsifier. Let good judgment keep her in check.
Put yourself on view. This brings your talents to light.
A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.
The things we remember best are those better forgotten.
At twenty a man is a peacock, at thirty a lion, at forty a camel, at fifty a serpent, at sixty a dog, at seventy an ape, at eighty a nothing at all.
