Some suggestions for you :

Just as apples when unripe are torn from trees, but when ripe and mellow drop down, so it is violence that takes life from young men, ripeness from old. This ripeness is so delightful to me that, as I approach nearer to death, I seem, as it were, to be sighting land, and to be coming to port at last after a long voyage.

What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.

Here is a man whose life and actions the world has already condemned - yet whose enormous fortune...has already brought him acquittal!

Kindness is stronger than fear.

It might be pardonable to refuse to defend some men, but to defend them negligently is nothing short of criminal.

It is our own evil thoughts which madden us.

To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.

There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness.

Politicians are not born; they are excreted.

Hatreds not vowed and concealed are to be feared more than those openly declared.

What can be more delightful than to have some one to whom you can say everything with the same absolute confidence as to yourself?

If I err in belief that the souls of men are immortal, I gladly err, nor do I wish this error which gives me pleasure to be wrested from me while I live.

The enemy is within the gates; it is with our own luxury, our own folly, our own criminality that we have to contend.

In everything truth surpasses the imitation and copy.
