No excellent soul is exempt from a mixture of madness.
— Aristotle

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare exempted quote

Things done well and with a care, exempt themselves from fear.
— William Shakespeare

In human life there is constant change of fortune; and it is unreasonable to expect an exemption from the common fate. Life itself decays, and all things are daily changing.
— Plutarch

To be exempt from the passions with which others are tormented, is the only pleasing solitude.
— exempted quotation by Joseph Addison
