What anger worse or slower to abate than lovers love when it turns to hate.
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.
Success is dependent on effort.
Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes angry.
He who throws away a friend is as bad as he who throws away his life.
If eyes were made for seeing, then beauty is its own excuse for being
Ralph Waldo Emerson
(May 25, 1803 - April 27, 1882)
It is peculiarly the business of a monitor to keep his own reputation untainted, lest those who can once charge him with partiality, should indulge themselves afterwards in disbelieving him at pleasure
(September 18, 1709 - December 13, 1784)
One must never have spared oneself, one must have acquired hardness as a habit to be cheerful and in good spirits in the midst of nothing but hard truths.
