To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it
They made and recorded a sort of institute and digest of anarchy, called the rights of man
Stand with anybody that stands right, stand with him while he is right and part with him when he goes wrong
It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong
It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong
Always do right. That will gratify some of the people and astonish the rest
It does not prove a thing to be right because the majority say it is so
There is no praise in being upright, where no one can, or tries to corrupt you
A mind conscious of right laughs at the falsehoods of rumour
All persons ought to endeavor to follow what is right, and not what is established

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."
