Great thoughts always come from the heart.
All grand thoughts come from the heart.
There is nothing that fear and hope does not permit men to do.
Of all pleasures the fruit of labor is the sweetest.
Men sometimes feel injured by praise because it assigns a limit to their merit few people are modest enough not to take offense that one appreciates them.
The shortness of life cannot dissuade us from its pleasures, nor console us for its pains.
To achieve great things we must live as if we were never going to die.
