I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.

Employ thy time well, if thou meanest to gain leisure.
Many foxes grow gray but few grow good.
Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy.
