Nije da se ne usuđujemo zato što su stvari teške; već su stvari teške zato što se ne usuđujemo.
I was not born for one corner; The whole world is my native land.
There is but one chain holding us in fetters, and that is our love of life.
If you look on wealth as a thing to be valued your imaginary poverty will cause you torment.
It is uncertain where Death will await you;there expect it everywhere.
Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for crisis.
Nature does not reveal her mysteries once and for all.

Life is like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters.
No man is crushed by misfortune unless he has first been deceived by prosperity
