There is no great genius free from some tincture of madness.
The hour which gives us life begins to take it away
The primary sign of a well-ordered mind is a man's ability to remain in one place and linger in his own company
The true felicity of life is to be free from anxieties and perturbations; to understand and do our duties to God and man, and to enjoy the present without any serious dependence on the future
This is the reason we cannot complain of life:it keeps no one against his will
We learn not in the school, but in life
Why does no one confess his sins? Because he is yet in them. It is for a man who has awoke from sleep to tell his dreams
A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
Where fear is, happiness is not.
