If you must hate a man for the many things about which you disagree, remember that you should also love him for the many things about which you agree.
From the moment we expect gratitude, we forfeit it.
Better to deserve praise without having it, than to have it without deserving it.
What we know is to what we do not know, as a grain of sand is to the beach.
A half-truth does more mischief than a whole lie.
The furnace which melts gold, also hardens clay. Before blaming thy fate, therefore, find whether thou art gold or clay.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
As the sea is beautiful not only in calm but also in storm, so is happiness found not only in peace but also in strife.
To go through life without love is to travel through the world in a carriage with closed windows.
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
