Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
When you have no basis for an argument, abuse the plaintiff.
Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
