«When we are young and again when we are old, we depend heavily on the affection of others.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.»

Life- natural life- has no better gift to give.?»

«Chivalry!---why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection---the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant ---Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword.»
«Affection faints not like a pale-faced coward,But then woos best when most his choice is froward.»
