He who sacrifices his conscience to ambition burns a picture to obtain the ashes.......




No ear can hear nor tongue can tell the tortures of the inward hell............






When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.......







Don't let life discourage you. Everyone who got where he is had to begin where you are right now......






Beauty is the first present nature gives to women and the first it takes away.........






Don't steal ! The government hates competition.........






It is double the pleasure to deceive the deceiver.........






The logic of the heart is absurd.................






Nothing is less in our power than the heart, and far from commanding we are forced to obey it..........






The most important things to say are those which often I did not think necessary for me to say...they were too obvious.......






Silence is one great art of conversation............







A good memory and a tongue tied in the middle is a combination which gives immortality to conversation............






The merit of originality is not novelty, is sincerity................






The more gross the fraud, the more glibly will it go down and the more greedily will it be swallowed, since folly will always find faith wherever impostors will find impudence...............






We believe at once in evil, we only believe in good upon reflection. Is this not sad.....?






Let us believe neither half of the good people tell us of ourselves, nor half the evil they say of others............






A thief believes everybody steals.............






Crisis refines life, that's when you discover who and what you are.....






Cruelty and fear shake hands together............







If it were absolutely necessary to choose, I would rather be guilty of an immoral act than of a cruel one......






Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of............







All cruelty springs from hard-heartiness and weakness.............






Creatures whose mainspring is curiosity enjoy the accumulating of facts far more than the pausing at times to reflect on those facts...........






The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One can't help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, and of the marvelous structure of reality..........






Every man ought to be inquisitive through every hour of his great adventure down to the day when he shall no longer cast a shadow in the sun. For if he dies without a question in his heart, what excuse is there for his continuance........?






Curiosity is as much the parent of attention, as attention is of memory..............






A cynic is a person who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing, he is a man who, when smells flowers looks around for a coffin, is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game, never sees a good quality in a man, and never fails to see a bad one....






We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by standing in awe of death.........





The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, will inevitably also make you lonely......






Is nothing impossible ?  Are there ways that lead to everything if we had sufficient will, if we always had sufficient means ? Is it often merely an excuse that we say things are impossible?   Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today...........






Humans can learn to like anything, that's why we are such a successful species. You can drop humans anywhere and they'll thrive....







I am mortal. I am born to love and to suffer..............






The animal who knows everything about himself, except why he was born and the meaning of his unique existence ;  Human.........






Some of us are like wheelbarrows, only useful when pushed, and very easily upset.......






A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world.Everyone you meet is your mirror.......






The prudence of the best heads is often defeated by the tenderness of the best of hearts...............






He that fights and runs away will live to fight another day..............






It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees...........






Dignity does not come in possessing honors, but in deserving them........






When faith is lost, when honor dies, the man is dead..........!






Grief is the agony of an instant; the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.............






The greatest incitement to guilt is the hope of sinning with impunity..............






Nobody has ever measured, not even the poets, how much a heart can hold................






The head learns new things, but the heart forever more practices old experiences..............






In a country well governed poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed wealth is something to be ashamed of....






He who knows how to be poor knows everything...............






Heaven will be inherited by every man who has heaven in his soul..............






Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions..............






Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful...............





Calamity is the perfect glass wherein we truly see and know ourselves..............






Imagination is the air of mind.............






You see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things as they never were and ask, 'Why not......?' Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world..........






One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul, and yet no one ever comes to sit by it.............






Where there is sorrow, there is holy ground...........






The world is so full of care and sorrow that it is a gracious debt we owe to one another to discover the bright crystals of delight hidden in somber circumstances and irksome tasks.........







Every man's memory is his private literature............






We do not know the true value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory........






The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests...........
