One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.

Man is always inclined to regard the small circle in which he lives as the center of the world and to make his particular, private lifethe standard of the universe and to make his particular, private life the standard of the universe.

This is the manner of noble souls: they do not want to have anything for nothing; least of all, life.

One should not wish to enjoy where one does not give joy.
Thus the sum of things is ever being reviewed, and mortals dependent one upon another. Some nations increase, others diminish, and in a short space the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners pass on the torch of life.
