The envious will die, but envy never
Too great haste leads us to error
Love is often a fruit of marriage
Men often marry in hasty recklessness and repent afterward all their lives
Grammar, which knows how to lord it over kings, and with high hands makes them obey its laws
The road is long from the project to its completion
The smallest errors are always the best
Innocence is not accustomed to blush
We are easily fooled by that which we love
To live without loving is not really to live

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
