The beginning is the most important part of any work.
Nothing great is easy.
We must infer that all things are produced more plentifully and easily and of a better quality when one man does one thing which is natural to him and does it at the right time, and leaves other things.
Those who love the truth in each thing are to be called lovers of wisdom and not lovers of opinion.
Knowledge is a faculty, and the mightiest of all faculties.
A man who means to be great must care neither for self nor for its belongings, but for justice.
The madness of love is the greatest of heaven’s blessings.
