Advice is seldom welcome; and those who want it the most always like it the least.
And let a scholar all earth's volumes carry, he will be but a walking dictionary: a mere articulate clock.
They're only truly great who are truly good.
I am ashamed the law is such an ass.
Be free all worthy spirits, and stretch yourselves, for greatness and for height.
