Quote by Aeschylus
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.
I know how men in exile feed on dreams.
God loves to help him who strives to help himself.

God's most lordly gift to man is decency of mind.

Search well and be wise, nor believe that self-willed pride will ever be better than...
When strength is yoked with justice, where is a mightier pair than they?
