One should count each day a separate life.
It is the superfluous things for which men sweat, - superfluous things that wear our togas theadbare, that force us to grow old in camp, that dash us upon foreign shores.
Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested.
Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body.
Life without the courage for death is slavery.
Fire tests gold, suffering tests brave men.
