      - [Conscience]

It is a truth but too well known, that rashness attends youth, as prudence does old age.

It is graceful in a man to think and to speak with propriety, to act with deliberation, and in every occurrence of life to find out and persevere in the truth. On the other hand, to be imposed upon, to mistake, to falter, and to be deceived, is as ungraceful as to rave or to be insane.
      - [Grace]

It is necessary for a Senator to be thoroughly acquainted with the constitution; and this is a knowledge of the most extensive nature; a matter of science, of diligence, of reflection, without which no Senator can possibly be fit for his office.
      - [Government]

It is not enough merely to possess virtue, as if it were an art; it should be practised.
      - [Virtue]

It is not only arrogant, but it is profligate, for a man to disregard the world's opinion of himself.
      - [Opinion]

It is of no avail to know what is about to happen; for it is a sad thing to be grieved when grief can do no good.
      - [Proverbs]

It is peculiarly a fool's habit to discern the faults of others, and to forget his own.
      - [Proverbs]

It is sheer folly to tear the hair in grief as if sorrow could be cured by baldness.
      - [Proverbs]

It is the soul itself which sees and hears, and not those parts which are, as it were, but windows to the soul.
      - [Soul]

Judge not by the number, but by the weight.
      - [Quality]

Justice consists in doing no injury to men; decency, in giving them no offence.
      - [Justice]

Learning is a kind of natural food for the mind.
  [Lat., Doctrina est ingenii naturale quoddam pabulum.]
      - adapted from "Acad. Quaest.", 4, 41

Let each man have according to his deserts.
      - [Proverbs]
