      - [Art]

Birth is a shadow. Courage, self-sustained, outlords succession's phlegm, and needs no ancestors.
      - [Birth]

Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter.
      - [Courage]

Custom forms us all; our thoughts, our morals, our most fixed belief, are consequences of our place of birth.
      - [Birthplace : Custom]

Deceit is the false road to happiness; and all the joys we travel through to vice, like fairy banquets, vanish when we touch them.
      - [Deceit]

Hide not thy tears; weep boldly, and be proud to give the flowing virtue manly way; it is nature's mark to know an honest heart by.
      - [Tears]

Law that shocks equity is reason's murderer.
      - [Law]

Let shining Charity adorn your zeal,
  The noblest impulse generous minds can feel.
      - [Charity]

Man is the circled oak; woman the ivy.
      - [Dependence]

Mischief and malice grow on the same branch of the tree of evil.
      - [Mischief]

O marriage! marriage! what a curse is thine,
  Where hands alone consent and hearts abhor.
      - [Matrimony]

Order, thou eye of action.
      - [Order]

Reason gains all men by compelling none.
      - [Reason]

Servile doubt argues an impotence of mind, that says we fear because we dare not meet misfortunes.
      - [Doubt]

Shame on those breasts of stone that cannot melt in soft adoption of another's sorrow.
      - [Tears]

She has an eye that could speak, though her tongue were silent.
      - [Eyes]

She most attracts who longest can refuse.
      - [Courtship]

She who means no mischief does it all.
      - [Mischief]

Shun fear, it is the ague of the soul! a passion man created for himself--for sure that cramp of nature could not dwell in the warm realms of glory.
      - [Fear]

The man with but one idea in his head is sure to exaggerate that to top-heaviness, and thus he loses his equilibrium.
      - [Monomania]

There is no merit where there is no trial; and, till experience stamps the mark of strength cowards may pass for heroes, faith for falsehood.
      - [Difficulties]

'Tis the same, with common natures,
  Use 'em kindly, they rebel,
    But, be rough as nutmeg graters,
      And the rogues obey you well.
      - [Obedience]

Trust me--with women worth the being won,
  The softest lover ever best succeeds.
      - [Courtship]

With women worth the being won,
  The softest lover ever best succeeds.
      - [Courtship]

Let never man be bold enough to say,
  Thus, and no farther shall my passion stray:
    The first crime, past, compels us into more,
      And guilt grows fate, that was but choice, before.
      - Athelwold (act V, sc. The Garden) [Love]
