He only half dies who leaves an image of himself in his sons.
– Carlo Goldoni
Noble bold is an accident of fortune; noble actions characterize the great.
A wise traveler never depreciates their own country.
The world is a beautiful book, but of little use to him who cannot read it.
He who never leaves his country is full of prejudices.
Pretexts are not wanting when one wishes to use them.
He who talks much cannot talk well.
The blush is beautiful, but it is sometimes convenient.
