Of all follies there is none greater than wanting to make the world a better place.
Reason is not what decides love.
I have the knack of easing scruples.
Eat to live, don't live to eat.
If you suppress grief too much, it can well redouble.
Solitude terrifies the soul at twenty.
It is the public scandal that offends; to sin in secret is no sin at all.
Man, I can assure you, is a nasty creature.
It is a fine seasoning for joy to think of those we love.
