We desire nothing so much as what we ought not to have.
How unhappy is he who cannot forgive himself
It is not every question that deserves an answer.
Nothing can be done quickly and prudently at the same time.
A small debt produces a debtor; a large one, an enemy
The weeping of an heir is laughter in disguise.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them.
It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.
Confidence, like the soul, never returns whence it has once departed
Fate is not satisfied with inflicting one calamity.
From the errors of others, a wise man corrects his own.
