Nature has ordained that the man who is pleading his own cause before a large audience, will be more readily listened to than he who has no object in view other than the public benefit.
There is nothing man will not attempt when great enterprises hold out the promise of great rewards.
All things will be clear and distinct to the man who does not hurry; haste is blind and improvident.
Good fortune and a good disposition are rarely given to the same man.
It is better that a guilty man should not be brought to trial than that he should be acquitted.
He is truly a man who will not permit himself to be unduly elated when fortune's breeze is favorable, or cast down when it is adverse.
