"Even in the common affairs of life, in love, friendship, and marriage, how little security have we when we trust our happiness in the hands of others!"
"To be happy, we must be true to nature and carry our age along with us."
"Love turns, with a little indulgence, to indifference or disgust; hatred alone is immortal."
"The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure very much."
"Rules and models destroy genius and art."
