Despair is a great incentive to honorable death
When the truth cannot be clearly made out, what is false is increased through fear.
Habit is stronger than nature.
Necessity when threatening is more powerful than device of man.
A brave man's country is wherever he chooses his abode.
Fear makes men believe the worst.
Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule.
The fashions of human affairs are brief and changeable, and fortune never remains long indulgent.
That possession which we gain by the sword is not lasting; gratitude for benefits is eternal.
Posterity pays for the sins of their fathers.
Haste is slow.
