The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
Truth, like light blind. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.
