Number of Quotes: 5





But whether it be dream or truth, to do well is what matters. If it be truth, for truth's sake. If not, then to gain friends for the time when we awaken.

For all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.

For man's greatest crime is to have been born.

Love that is not madness is not love.

One may know how to gain a victory, and know not how to use it.
