Author Quotes

No man has any right to rule who is not better than the people over whom he rules.

Soft climates breed soft men; the same soil never produces both delicacies and heroes.

If your actions are upright and benevolent, be assured they will augment your power and happiness.

All men have their frailties; and whoever looks for a friend without imperfections, will never find what he seeks. We love ourselves notwithstanding our faults, and we ought to love our friends in like manner.
