You cannot be both fashionable and first-rate.
~ Logan Pearsall Smith
Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs.
Whether they give or refuse, it delights women just the same to have been asked.
All human things hang on a slender thread, the strongest fall with a sudden crash.
Thanks are justly due for boons unbought.
He who can believe himself well, will be well.
Venus favors the bold.
Make the workmanship surpass the materials.
Medicine sometimes snatches away health, sometimes gives it.
Envy assails the noblest: the winds howl around the highest peaks.
I hate a woman who offers herself because she ought to do so, and, cold and dry, thinks of her sewing when she's making love.
'Tis not always in a physician's power to cure the sick; at times the disease is stronger than trained art.
Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion.
It is some relief to weep; grief is satisfied and carried off by tears.
