I learned you can’t trust the judgment of good friends.
World history is a court of judgment.
Fortune truly helps those who are of good judgment.
Foolish men imagine that because judgment for an evil thing is delayed, there is no justice; but only accident here below. Judgment for an evil thing is many times delayed some day or two, some century or two, but it is sure as life, it is sure as death.
