Love lives on hope, and dies when hope is dead
Love is the extra effort we make in our dealings with those whom we do not like and once you understand that, you understand all. This idea that love overtakes you is nonsense. This is but a polite manifestation of sex. To love another you have to undertake some fragment of their destiny.
Ambition aspires to descend
Guess, if you can, and choose, if you dare.
Danger breeds best on too much confidence.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
To myself alone do I owe my fame.
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
One often calms one's grief by recounting it.
Happiness seems made to be shared.
He who is hated by all can not expect to live long.
Here honor binds me, and I wish to satisfy it.
A liar is always lavish of oaths.
Love is a tyrant sparing none.
What destroys one man preserves another
