Judge a tree from its fruit; not from the leaves.
But this is slavery, not to speak ones thought.
When good men die their goodness does not perish,
But lives though they are gone. As for the bad,
All that was theirs dies and is buried with them.
Tragedy isn’t getting something or failing to get it, it’s losing something you already have.
Slight not what’s near, while aiming at what’s far.
To have found you is a dear happiness; and to be Apollo’s son is beyond all my hopes; but there is something I want to say to you alone. Come; this is a private matter between us two – anything you tell me shall be as secret as the grave.
