How can you dare teach a man to read until you’ve taught him everything else first?
Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting in a particular way.
The present will not long endure.
There is no great genius without some touch of madness.
Ignorance is bold and knowledge reserved.
The man whose authority is recent is always stern.
Youth is easily deceived because it is quick to hope.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
The art of living well and the art of dying well are one.
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
