The test of any man lies in action.
Man is a dream about a shadow. But when some splendour falls upon him from God, a glory comes to him and his life is sweet.
War is sweet to those who have no experience of it, but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach.
Not every truth is the better for showing its face undisguised; and often silence is the wisest thing for a man to heed.
But if a man shall hope in aught he does To escape the eyes of god, he makes an error.
