And when love speaks, the voice of all the gods makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.
Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
Come what may, Time and the hour runs through the roughest day.
How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.
I feel within me a peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience.
Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.
Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.
Make use of time, let not advantage slip; Beauty within itself should not be wasted.
No legacy is so rich as honesty.
Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.
Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried.
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
What wound did ever heal but by degrees?.
