      - [History]

Nothing is difficult in the eyes of a lover.
      - [Proverbs]

Nothing is more disgraceful than insincerity.
      - [Insincerity]

Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind.
      - [Fidelity]

Nothing is so great an adversary to those who make it their business to please as expectation.

Nothing is so secure as that money will not defeat it.
      - [Money : Proverbs]

Nothing is so swift as calumny, nothing is more easily propagated, nothing more readily credited, nothing more widely circulated.
      - [Calumny : Proverbs]

Nothing is so unpredictable as a throw of the dice, and yet every man who plays often will at some time or other make a Venus-cast: now and then he indeed will make it twice and even thrice in succession. Are we going to be so feebleminded then as to aver that such a thing happened by the personal intervention of Venus rather than by pure luck?
      - [Gambling]

Nothing maintains its bloom forever; age succeeds age.
      - [Change]

Now clothed like a Roman, now like a Greek. [An inconstant, perfidious man.]
      - [Proverbs]

Now it was well said, whoever said it, "That he who hath the loan of money has not repaid it and he who has repaid has not the loan; but he who has acknowledged a kindness has it still, and he who has a feeling of it has requited it."
      - [Gratitude]

O mighty power of truth!
      - [Truth]

O rare protector of the sheep, a wolf!
      - [Proverbs]

O these degenerate days!
      - [Proverbs]

Of all the rewards of virtue, . . . the most splendid is fame, for it is fame alone that can offer us the memory of posterity.
      - [Fame]

Oh, how great is the power of truth! which of its own power can easily defend itself against all the ingenuity and cunning and wisdom of men, and against the treacherous plots of all the world.
      - [Truth]

Old age, especially an honored old age, has so great authority that this is of more value than all the pleasures of youth.
      - [Old Age]

One man thinks one thing best, another another.
      - [Proverbs]

Orators are most vehement when they have the weakest cause, as men get on horseback when they cannot walk.
      - [Oratory]

Other relaxations are peculiar to certain times, places and stages of life, but the study of letters is the nourishment of our youth, and the joy of our old age. They throw an addition splendor on prosperity, and are the resource and consolation of adversity; they delight at home, and are no embarrassment abroad; in short, they are company to us at night, our fellow-travellers on a journey, and attendants in out rural recesses.
      - [Literature]

Our generosity never should exceed our abilities.
      - [Generosity]

Our liberality should not exceed our ability.
      - [Proverbs]

Peace is liberty in tranquillity.
      - [Peace]

Philosophy, if rightly defined, is naught but the love of wisdom.
      - [Philosophy]
