Respect yourself, but
do not be envious of
your accomplishments


The dignity of
favorable beginnings
is lost on an ape


Beautiful women
depend on the applause of
brute expectations


Real friendship is
a great falsifier, as
obscure as nothing


When desire gilds your
happiness, never contend
with integrity


One must pass through the
peacock’s mirror to find the
limits of fashion


Among gamblers and
fools, the burden of time slinks
like a mad serpent


A reputation
is always built on the sweet
touch of bad manners


is the art of affecting
a sage ignorance
