Courage, when it is not heroic self-sacrifice, is sometimes a modification and sometimes a result of faith.
      - [Courage]

Curiosity is a little more than another name for hope.

      - [Oratory]

Poetry is the key to the hieroglyphics of nature.

Purity is the feminine, truth the masculine, of honor.
      - [Honor]
