Charity But how shall we expect charity towards others, when we are uncharitable to ourselves? Charity begins at home, is the voice of the world; yet is every man his greatest enemy, and, as it were, his own executioner.
Be charitable before wealth makes you covetous.
Death is the cure for all diseases.
Man is a noble animal, splendid in ashes, and pompous in the grave.
Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.
We all labor against our own cure, for death is the cure of all diseases.

Nature is the art of God.
Obstinacy in a bad cause is but constancy in a good.
