Anticipation leads the way to victory, and is the spur to conquest
Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy
The torment of precautions often exceeds the dangers to be avoided. It is sometimes better to abandon one's self to destiny
One should never forbid what one lacks the power to prevent
Caution is the eldest child of wisdom
Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory
No man ever properly calculates from time to time what it is his duty to avoid
Fire, if neglected, will soon gain strength
A cup concealed in the dress is rarely honestly carried
The cautious seldom err

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."
