"the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom."
"no bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings."
"what is now proved was once only imagin'd."
"every thing possible to be believ'd is an image of truth."
"exuberance is beauty."
"the man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, + breeds reptiles of the mind."
