The days that are still to come are the wisest witnesses.
Men are the dreams of a shadow.
The present will not long endure.
Not every truth is the better for showing its face undisguised; and often silence is the wisest thing for a man to heed.
Whatever is beautiful is beautiful by necessity.
Custom is the universal sovereign.
Even now I am full of hope, but the end lies in God.
There is a mortal breed most full of futility. In contempt of what is at hand, they strain into the future. Hanging impossibilities on the wings of ineffectual hopes.
