Ignorance is bold and knowledge reserved.
The strong do what they have to do and the weak accept what they have to accept.
The secret to happiness is freedom… And the secret to freedom is courage.
Wars spring from unseen and generally insignificant causes, the first outbreak being often but an explosion of anger.
We Greeks are lovers of the beautiful, yet simple in our tastes, and we cultivate the mind without loss of manliness.
We secure our friends not by accepting favors but by doing them.
We should remember that one man is much the same as another, and that he is best who is trained in the severest school.
Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought.
The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.
Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war.
