Jealousy is bred in doubts. When those doubts change into certainties, then the passion either ceases or turns absolute madness.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The principal point of cleverness is to know how to value things just as they deserve.
Jealousy contains more of self-love than of love.
Innocence does not find near so much protection as guilt.
Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.
We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves.
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
People's personalities, like buildings, have various facades, some pleasant to view, some not.
However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire.
