The most dangerous moment comes with victory.
It is not set speeches at the moment of battle that render soldiers brave.
Our hour is marked, and no one can claim a moment of life beyond what fate has predestined.
In war there is but one favorable moment; the great art is to seize it!
Sometimes a single battle decides everything and sometimes, too, the slightest circumstance decides the issue of a battle. There is a moment in every battle at which the least manoeuvre is decisive and gives superiority, as one drop of water causes overflow.
A new-born Government must shine and astonish - the moment it loses its Ã©clat it falls.
Remember that a man, a true man, never hates. His rages and his bad moods never last beyond the present moment-like electric shocks.
The fate of a battle is the result of a moment, of a thought: the hostile forces advance with various combinations, they attack each other and fight for a certain time; the critical moment arrives, a mental flash decides, and the least reserve accomplishes the object.

Reflect often upon the rapidity with which all existing things, or things coming into existence, sweep past us and are carried away.
No matter what anyone says or does, my task is to be emerald, my color undiminished.
Because other people are fools, must you be so too?
Why should anyone be afraid of change? What can take place without it? What can be more pleasing or more suitable to universal nature? Can you take your bath without the firewood undergoing a change?
