Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for.
No one is really miserable who has not tried to cheapen life.
There is no real excellence in all of this world which can be separated from right living.
The world turns aside to let any man pass who knows whither he is going.
Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it.
When a dog barks at the moon, then it is religion; but when he barks at strangers, it is patriotism!
Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it.
