I have had good experience and trial of this world...I know what it is to be a subject, what to be a sovereign, what to have good neighbours, and sometimes meet evil willers. I have found treason in trust, seen great benefits little regarded.
Colorless green ideas sleep furiously
Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised.
To me, being an intellectual doesn't mean knowing about intellectual issues; it means taking pleasure in them.
An intelligent hell would be better than a stupid paradise.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
The most certain sign of wisdom is cheerfulness.
Wisdom begins at the end.
Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.
Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius.
Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.
To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid
