With a grain of salt.
Pliny The Elder
The only certainty is that nothing is certain.
The happier the moment the shorter.
In comparing various authors with one another, I have discovered that some of the gravest and latest writers have transcribed, word for word, from former works, without making acknowledgment.
Nothing which we can imagine about Nature is incredible.
Have God on your side, definitely have God on your side ... It's very frightening.
With the truth you can be quite causal, with lying you must be very exact.
It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness
James Matthew Barrie
