    Dear friends,
    I have collected these points to ponder and would like to share with you all. Hope that you all will like it.

    • If a man could have half his wishes, he could double his troubles.

    • Any man can make a mistake, none but a fool will stick to it.

    • Good taste is the flower of good sense.

    • I regret often that I have spoken, but never that I have been silent.

    • When we have not we love, we must love what we have.

    • It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follows.

    • Often the test of courage is not to die, but to live.

    • In youth we learn, in old age we understand.

    • Every stroke our fury strikes is sure to hit ourselves at last.

    • To pity distress is human, to relieve it is God like.

    • Good to forgive, best to forget.

    • Anger is momentary madness, so control your passion or it will control you.

    • If you do not want to be forgotten, as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.

    • To see what is right and not to do it is want of courage.

    • To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved.

    • The main thing is to make History, not to write it.

    • The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

    • No one is rich enough to do without a neighbour.

    • The defect of equality is that we desire it only with our superiors.
