It is easy to give advice from a port of safety.
Quote by Friedrich Von Schiller
A healthy nature needs no God or immortality
Keep true to the dreams of your youth.
Against stupidity the very Gods themselves toil in vain.
Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God
Power is the most persuasive rhetoric.
Against stupidity the very gods themselves contend in vain.
A gloomy guest fits not a wedding feast.
The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.
One can give advice comfortably from a safe port.
Disappointments are to the soul what the thunder-storm is to the air.
The great happiness of life, I find, after all, to consist in the regular discharge...
Truth exists for the wise, beauty for the feeling heart.
Genuine morality is preserved only in the school of adversity; a state of continuous prosperity...
Votes should be weighed, not counted
No greater grief than to remember days of gladness when sorrow is at hand
Historians are prophets with their face turned backward.
Only those who have to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do...
They would need to be already wise, in order to love wisdom.
The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
Great men are not always wise
