When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.
The years wrinkle our skin, but lack of enthusiasm wrinkles our soul.
Knowing thyself is the height of wisdom.
Life without enquiry is not worth living.
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for.

Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.
