When we are lost, we will begin to understand ourselves.
Virtue and good deeds are the only invincible investment.
I would rather sit alone on a pumpkin than crowded on a velvet cushion.
The mind is always inexperienced.
Sometimes illness is good for health.
Man, like a buoy, cannot sink in any storm.
Superfluous wealth can only be exchanged for the life of the luxurious, and the necessities of the soul need not be purchased with money.
Work is good for the body, and work for the soul is good for the soul. Work for others is good for both.
I like being alone. I've never met a better partner than loneliness.
