Be silent as to services you have rendered, but speak of favours you have received.
Whenever the speech is corrupted so is the mind.
No one can wear a mask for very long.
There is none made so great, but he may both need the help and service, and stand in fear of the power and unkindness, even of the meanest of mortals.
He who is brave is free.
Even in paradise, living all alone would be hell.
It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor.
Anger is like those ruins which smash themselves on what they fall.
