Many things have fallen only to rise higher.
Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

The bad fortune of the good turns their faces up to heaven; the good fortune of the bad bows their heads down to the earth.
Nobody works out the value of time: men use it lavishly as if it cost nothing… We have to be more careful in preserving what will cease at an unknown point.
Shame may restrain what law does not prohibit.
