beware of defining as intelligent only those who share your opinions
generosity can, unfortunately, also amount to good business
if you wish to savour your good qualities, commit a sin from time to time
one of the advantages of pleasure over pain is that for pleasure you can say \'stop\'
to have doubts about oneself is the first sign of intelligence
