Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all
To lead an orchestra, you must turn your back on the crowd
Comedy aims at representing men as worse, Tragedy as better than in actual life.
The only stable state is the one in which all men are equal before the law.
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
Character may almost be called the most effective means of persuasion.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin
Tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world
You can never turn your back on the ocean
When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions
Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life
