Activate yourself to duty by remembering your position, who you are, and what you have obliged yourself to be.
Adversities do not make a man frail. They show what sort of man he is.
The acknowledgment of our weakness is the first step in repairing our loss.
We usually know what we can do, but temptation shows us who we are.
The loftier the building the deeper the foundation must be.
The better you understand yourself the less cause you will find to love yourself.

First keep peace with yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.
Out of sight, out of mind. The absent are always in the wrong.
