To see beauty you must have beauty in your soul.
The beginning is the half of every action.
Nothing is so difficult that diligence cannot master it.
Reading books removes sorrows from the heart.
Words are dwarfs, deeds are giants.
Anyone who sees beauty and does not look at it will soon be poor.
Words are like spears: Once they leave your lips they can never come back.
It is the voyage not the ship that matters.
Instruction in youth is like engraving in stone.
We start as fools and become wise through experience.
