Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
Every flatterer lives at the expense of him who listens to him.
A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
Patience and time do more than strength or passion.
Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer.
Nothing is more dangerous than a friend without discretion; even a prudent enemy is preferable.
People who make no noise are dangerous.
