By night an atheist half believes in God.
Those who build beneath the stars build too low.
Be wise with speed; a fool at forty is a fool indeed
Wonder is involuntary praise.
But fate ordains that dearest friends must part.
What is revenge but courage to call in our honor's debts, and wisdom to convert others' self-love into our own protection?
Where nature's end of language is declined,And men talk only to conceal the mind
Procrastination is the thief of time.
Ah, how unjust to Nature and himself Is thoughtless, thankless, inconsistent man!
