No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it.
No human being will ever know the Truth, for even if they happen to say it by chance, they would not even known they had done so.
That's metaphysics, my dear fellow. It's forbidden me by my doctor, my stomach won't take it.
Like an Indian deity at leisure, Rubens relieves his fecundity by creating worlds, and from the matchless folds and hues of his tossed simarres to the snowy whites of his flesh, or the pale silkiness of his blonde tresses, there is no tone in any of his canvasses which does not appear there purposely to afford him delight.
