Quotes

All of which misery I saw, part of which I was
A fault is fostered by concealment
Believe one who has tried it
Fortune favours the daring
Persevere and preserve yourselves for better circumstances
Who asks whether the enemy was defeated by strategy or valor?
Happy the man who has been able to learn the causes of things
Trust not too much to beauty
We cannot all do all things
