Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
It is impossible to please all the world and one's father.
One often has need of one, inferior to himself.
Power is the faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something....
Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.
People who make no noise are dangerous.
The strongest passion is fear.
Neither wealth or greatness render us happy.
Rather suffer than die is man's motto.
Help thyself and Heaven will help thee.
Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it; nothing is commoner...
Let ignorance talk as it will, learning has its value.
The fastidious are unfortunate; nothing satisfies them.
A pessimist and an optimist, so much the worse; so much the better.
Beware so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance
Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred.
Every flatterer lives at the expense of him who listens to him.
There is nothing useless to men of sense.
There is no road of flowers leading to glory.
