      - [Soul]

What knowledge is there of which man is capable that is not founded on the exterior,--the relation that exists between visible and invisible, the perceptible and the imperceptible?
      - [Physiognomy]

Whatever obscurities may involve religious tenets, humility and love constitute the essence of true religion; the humble is formed to adore, the loving to associate with eternal love.
      - [Humility]

Where pride begins, love ceases.
      - [Pride]

Where there is much pretension, much has been borrowed; nature never pretends.
      - [Boasting]

Who affects useless singularities has surely a little mind.
