Aendern und bessern sind zwei —To change, and 10 to change for the better, are two different things. A fact is a great thing: a sentence printed, 25 if not by God, then at least by the Devil. A fact in our lives is valuable, not so far as it is true, but as it is significant. A facto ad jus non datur consequentia —Inference from the fact to the law is not legitimate. A faithful friend is a true image of the Deity. A favour does not consist in the service done, but in the spirit of the man who confers it.
A fellow who speculates is like an animal on a barren heath, driven round and round by an evil spirit, while there extends on all sides of him a beautiful green meadow-pasture. Emerson, from Wordsworth. Afflavit Deus et dissipantur —God sent forth his breath, and they are scattered. Inscription on medal struck to commemorate the destruction of the Spanish Armada. A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool. A fool always accuses other people; a partially wise man, himself; a wholly wise man, neither himself nor others.
A fool always finds a greater fool to admire 55 him. A fool is often as dangerous to deal with as a knave, and always more incorrigible. A fool knows more in his own house than a 60 wise man in another's. A fool resents good counsel, but a wise man 65 lays it to heart. A fool when he is silent is counted wise. A fool who has a flash of wit creates astonishment and scandal, like a hack-horse setting out to gallop. A force de mal aller tout ira bien —By dint of going wrong all will go right. A friend's eye is a good looking-glass. A friendship will be young at the end of a century, a passion old at the end of three months.
After life's fitful fever he sleeps well. After the spirit of discernment, the next rarest things in the world are diamonds and pearls. Age does not make us childish, as people say; it only finds us still true children. A genius is one who is endowed with an excess 25 of nervous energy and sensibility.
A gentleman that will speak more in a minute than he will stand to in a month. Age quod agis —Attend to lit. Agere considerate pluris est quam cogitare prudenter —It is of more consequence to act considerately than to think sagely. A God speaks softly in our breast; softly, yet distinctly, shows us what to hold by and what to shun. A good book is the precious life-blood of a 40 master-spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.
A good inclination is only the first rude draught of virtue, but the finishing strokes are from the will. A good law is one that holds, whether you recognise it or not; a bad law is one that cannot, however much you ordain it. A good man in his dark striving is, I should say, conscious of the right way. A good rider on a good horse is as much above himself and others as the world can make him.

Lord Herbert of Cherbury. A government for protecting business and 60 bread only is but a carcase, and soon falls by its own corruption to decay. A government may not waver; once it has chosen its course, it must, without looking to right or left, thenceforth go forward. A great anguish may do the work of years, and we may come out from that baptism of fire with a soul full of new awe and new pity.
A great deal may and must be done which we 65 dare not acknowledge in words. A great genius takes shape by contact with another great genius, but less by assimilation than by friction.
Excerpts from the 623rd & 625th Contact Reports
A great man is he who can call together the most select company when it pleases him. A great man living for high ends is the 70 divinest thing that can be seen on earth. A great man quotes bravely, and will not draw on his invention when his memory serves him with a word as good. A great master always appropriates what is good in his predecessors, and it is this which makes him great. A great reputation is a great noise; the more there is made, the farther off it is heard. A great revolution is never the fault of the 5 people, but of the government. A great spirit errs as well as a little one, the former because it knows no bounds, the latter because it confounds its own horizon with that of the universe.
A great thing can only be done by a great man, and he does it without effort. A great thing is a great book, but greater than all is the talk of a great man. A great writer does not reveal himself here 10 and there, but everywhere. A grey eye is a sly eye; a brown one indicates a roguish humour; a blue eye expresses fidelity; while the sparkling of a dark eye is, like the ways of Providence, always a riddle.
