Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

This above all: to thine own self be true.

Tell yourself, first of all, what kind of man you want to be; and then go ahead with what you are doing.

Learn to know yourself, and descend into yourself.

"Know yourself" is the whole of science. Only at the end of the perception of all things will man have recognized himself. For things are only the borders of man.
