Art, as far as it is able, follows nature, as a pupil imitates his master; thus your art must be, as it were, God’s grandchild.
Will cannot be quenched against its will.
No one thinks of how much blood it costs.
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.
The more perfect a thing is, the more susceptible to good and bad treatment it is.
Be as a tower firmly set; Shakes not its top for any blast that blows.
Heaven wheels above you, displaying to you her eternal glories, and still your eyes are on the ground.
Remember tonight… for it is the beginning of always.
There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in times of misery.
