Let me not then die ingloriously and without a struggle, but let me first do some great thing that shall be told among men hereafter.
Each man delights in the work that suits him best.
Life is largely a matter of expectation.
Be still my heart; thou hast known worse than this.
If you serve too many masters, you’ll soon suffer.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.
I know not what the future holds, but I know who holds the future.
