      - [Forgiveness]

The truly valiant dare everything but doing anybody an injury.
      - [Valor]

The violence of sorrow is not at the first to be striven withal; being, like a mighty beast, sooner tamed with following than overthrown by withstanding.

Thinking nurseth thinking.
      - [Thought]

Thou blind man's mark; thou fool's self-chosen snare,
  Fond fancy's scum, and dregs of scatter'd thoughts;
    Band of all evils; cradle of causeless care;
      Thou web of ill, whose end is never wrought;
        Desire! Desire! I have too, dearly bought
          With price of mangled mind thy worthless ware,
            Too long, too long, asleep thou hast me brought,
              Who shouldst my mind to higher things prepare.
      - [Desire]

To be ambitious of true honor, of the true glory end perfection of our natures, is the very principle and incentive of virtue; but to be ambitious of titles, of place, of ceremonial respects and civil pageantry, is as vain and little as the things are which we court.
      - [Ambition]

To the disgrace of men it is seen that there are women both more wise to judge what evil is expected, and more constant to bear it when it happens.

True bravery is quiet, undemonstrative.
      - [Bravery]

Truth is the ground of science, the centre wherein all things repose, and is the type of eternity.

      - [Valor]

Vice is but a nurse of agonies.
      - [Vice]

We become willing servants to the good by the bonds their virtues lay upon us.
      - [Servitude]

Weigh not so much what men say, as what they prove; remembering that truth is simple and naked, and needs not invective to apparel her comeliness.
      - [Truth]

What doth better become wisdom than to discern what is worthy the living.
      - [Wisdom]

What is birth to a man if it shall be a stain to his dead ancestors to have left such an offspring?
      - [Ancestry : Birth]

What is mine, even to my life, is hers I love; but the secret of my friend is not mine!
      - [Secrecy]

Whatever comes out of despair cannot bear the title of valor, which should be lifted up to such a height that holding all things under itself, it should be able to maintain its greatness, even in the midst of miseries.
      - [Valor]
