By faithful study of the nobler arts, our nature’s softened, and more gentle grows.
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.

Love will enter cloaked in friendship’s name.
Take rest; a field that has rested gives a beautiful crop.
We always strive after what is forbidden, and desire the things refused us.
