No emperor has the power to dictate to the heart.
Quote by Friedrich Von Schiller
Votes should be weighed, not counted
Sorrow is brief but joy is endless
Only those who have to do simple things perfectly will acquire the skill to do...
It is easy to give advice from a port of safety.
Love is the reward of love
There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs...
Truth exists for the wise, beauty for the feeling heart.
Disappointments are to the soul what the thunder-storm is to the air.
The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.
Historians are prophets with their face turned backward.
Power is the most persuasive rhetoric.
A healthy nature needs no God or immortality
They would need to be already wise, in order to love wisdom.
No greater grief than to remember days of gladness when sorrow is at hand
Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God
Genuine morality is preserved only in the school of adversity; a state of continuous prosperity...
The great happiness of life, I find, after all, to consist in the regular discharge...
A gloomy guest fits not a wedding feast.
A guest and a fish after three days are poison
