The vain being is the really solitary being.
The silver-leaved birch retains in its old age a soft bark; there are some such men.
Discontent is the source of all trouble,but also of all progress, in individuals and nations.
To harbor hatred and animosity in the soul makes one irritable, gloomy, and prematurely old.
Of all afflictions, the worst is self contempt.
In Nature there is no dirt, everything is in the right condition; the swamp and the worm, as well as the grass and the bird,-all is there for itself.
To acquire money requires valor, to keep money requires prudence, and to spend money well is an art.
The little dissatisfaction which every artist feels at the completion of a work forms the germ of a new work.
Years teach us more than books.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
