There is properly no history; only biography

Friendship, like the immortality of the soul, is too good to be believed.
If everything else fails, read the instructions
There can be no high civility without a deep morality
Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
The Sky is the daily bread of the imagination
I can find my biography in every fable that I read

I am; therefore, I had nothing better to do than to think.
No great man ever complains of want of opportunity.
Fine manners need the support of fine manners in others.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
