War is the trade of kings.
Quote by John Dryden
Every age has a kind of universal genius, which includes those that live in it...
Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is with thoughts of what may...
Words are but pictures of our thoughts.
Genius must be born, and never can be taught.
It is madness to make fortune the mistress of events, because by herself she is...
Drinking is the soldier's pleasure.
Roused by the lash of his own stubborn tail our lion now will foreign foes...
Errors like straws upon the surface flow: Who would search for pearls must dive below
Look round the habitable world, how few Know their own good, or, knowing it, pursue!
The sooner you treat your son as a man, the sooner he will be one.
What passions cannot music raise or quell?
The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides...
Beware the fury of a patient man.
Successful crimes alone are justified
Love is not in our choice but in our fate.
For they conquer who believe they can.
All things are subject to decay and when fate summons, monarchs must obey.
Dancing is the poetry of the foot.
The girl who can't dance says the band can't play
With time, even a bear can learn to dance
