No persons are more frequently wrong, than those who will not admit they are wrong.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The heart is forever making the head its fool.
Silence is the safest course for any man to adopt who distrust himself.
Extreme boredom provides its own antidote.
We only acknowledge small faults in order to make it appear that we are free from great ones.
There are very few things impossible in themselves; and we do not want means to conquer difficulties so much as application and resolution in the use of means.
