As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.
What is not started today is never finished tomorrow.
He only earns his freedom and his life Who takes them every day by storm.
The human mind will not be confined to any limits.
Love and desire are the spirit's wings to great deeds.
Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.
The coward only threatens when he is safe.
