      - [Decency]

I hope the edge of your guillotine is sharper than your scissors.
      - [Scaffold]

Method, like perseverance, wins in the long run.
      - [Method]

The best government is not that which renders men the happiest, but that which renders the greatest number happy.
      - [Government]

      - [Matrimony]

The pride of the heart is the attribute of honest men; pride of manners is that of fools; the pride of birth and rank is often the pride of dupes.
      - [Pride]
