Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.
Praises for our past triumphs are as feathers to a dead bird.
If we were brought to trial for the crimes we have committed against ourselves, few would escape the gallows.
History is the transformation of tumultuous conquerors into silent footnotes.
In the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled.
