The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts
Perhaps the day may come when we shall remember these sufferings with joy
One man excels in eloquence, another in arms
Of such importance is early training
None but himself can be his parallel
Love conquers all
Let not our proposal be disregarded on the score of our youth
Impotent fury rages powerless and to no purpose
Happy, twice happy, you who dwell in the country, if you only knew the pleasures which surround you!
Even virtue is fairer when it appears in a beautiful person

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."
