I am, indeed, a king, because I know how to rule myself.
If you want to annoy your neighbors, tell the truth about them.
I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because, of all the things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.
A high heart ought to bear calamities and not flee them, since in bearing them appears the grandeur of the mind and in fleeing them the cowardice of the heart.
I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies.
