No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
The injury we do and the one we suffer are not weighed in the same scales.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
United we stand, divided we fall.
Please all, and you will please none.
The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
