From one learn all.

Confidence cannot find a place wherein to rest in safety.

If ye despise the human race and mortal arms yet remember that there is a God who is mindful of right and wrong.

The medicine increases the disease.

Love conquers all.

Each of us bears his own Hell.

It is easy to go down into Hell, night and day the gates of dark Death stand wide, but to climb back again to retrace one's steps to the upper air - there's the rub the task.

Better times perhaps await us who are now wretched.

They are able because they think they are able.

I shudder when relating it.

There should be no strife with the vanquished or the dead.

Myself acquainted with misfortune I learn to help the unfortunate.

What region of the earth is not full of our calamities?
