Fortune only changes for those who do not know how to conform to their times.

Man can climb to the highest summits; but he cannot dwell there long.


Baltasar Gracian also said...

True knowledge lies in knowing how to live.

Know or listen to those who know.

When in doubt, follow the suit of the wise and prudent.

Hope is a great falsifier of truth.

There are hurricanes in human affairs, tempests of passion, when it is wise to retire to a harbor and ride it out at anchor. Remedies often make diseases worse.

There is no higher rule than that over oneself, over one's impulses: there is the triumph of free will.
