There is no excellency without difficulty.
Burdens become light when cheerfully borne.
Courage conquers all things.
Both fortune and love befriend the bold.
Nothing is more useful to man than those arts which have no utility.
There is no need of words; believe facts.
Truly now is the golden age; the highest honour comes by means of gold; by gold love is procured.
Neither will the wave which has passed be called back; nor can the hour which has gone by return.
It is the mind that makes the man, and our vigour is in our immortal soul.
There is a God within us, and we glow when he stirs us.
