Pierre Corneille also said...

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.

For souls nobly born valor doesn't await the passing of years.

Time is a great master; it regulates things well.

Learn to know yourself, and descend into yourself.

In the happiness of others I seek my own.

Every man of courage is a man of his word.
