Trust him not with your secrets, who, when left alone in your room, turns over your papers.
By: Johann Kaspar Lavater
I am prejudiced in favor of him who, without impudence, can ask boldly. He has faith in humanity, and faith in himself. No one who is not accustomed to giving grandly can ask nobly and with boldness.
Intuition is the clear conception of the whole at once.
If you see one cold and vehement at the same time, set him down for a fanatic.
The prudent see only the difficulties, the bold only the advantages, of a great enterprise; the hero sees both; diminishes the former and makes the latter preponderate, and so conquers.
What do I owe to my times, to my country, to my neighbors, to my friends? Such are the questions which a virtuous man ought often to ask himself.
You may tell a man thou art a fiend, but not your nose wants blowing; to him alone who can bear a thing of that kind, you may tell all.
Dont speak evil of someone if you dont know for certain, and if you do know ask yourself, why am I telling it?
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Conscience is the sentinel of virtue.
Him, who incessantly laughs in the street, you may commonly hear grumbling in his closet.
The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.
