Poetry is life distilled.
~ Gwendolyn Brooks
One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others.
The mind has great influence over the body, and maladies often have their origin there.
It is madness beyond compare to try to reform the world.
Those whose conduct gives room for talk are always the first to attack their neighbors.
If you suppress grief too much, it can well redouble.
Nearly all men die of their remedies, and not of their illnesses.
He's a wonderful talker, who has the art of telling you nothing in a great harangue.
