The greatest magnifying glasses in the world are a man's own eyes when they look upon his own person
Passions are the gales of life.
True, conscious honour is to feel no sin; he's armed without that's innocent within.
Men dream of courtship, but in wedlock wake.
Those move easiest who have learn'd to dance.
All are but parts of one stupendous whole, Whose body Nature is, and God the soul.
Many men have been capable of doing a wise thing, more a cunning thing, but very few a generous thing.
Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon.
Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
How prone to doubt, how cautious are the wise!
