All evils are equal when they are extreme.
Force is legitimate where gentleness avails not.
Those who easily forgive invite offenses.
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
One often calms one's grief by recounting it.
Happiness seems made to be shared.
I have deserved neither so much honor or so much disgrace.
A liar is full of oaths.
Love is a tyrant sparing none.
Peace is produced by war.
We never taste happiness in perfection, our most fortunate successes are mixed with sadness.
It is the crime not the scaffold which is the disgrace.
