Author Quotes

Our own actions are our security, not others' judgments.

No tie can oblige the perfidious.

None is offended but by himself.

He that trusts in a lie, shall perish in truth... Better speak truth rudely, than lie covertly.

He that respects not is not respected.

He that tells a secret is another's servant.

He that once deceives is ever suspected.

Fear nothing but sin.

Dare to be true: nothing can need a lie; a fault which needs it most grows two thereby.

All things in their being are good for something.

An oath that is not to be made, is not to be kept.

A good Judge conceives quickly, judges slowly.
