Tonic more powerful than music or spoken words is silence.
Solitude is the companionable presence of God.
A conscience at peace is a good night’s sleep.
Coffee is a beverage you drink with your nose and digest with your heart.
After the snake sheds its skin, it’s the same snake.
All play and no work makes Jack unemployed.
The path to Heaven is cratered with bad intentions.
A thousand words do not paint a picture.
Study the past in order to break with the past.
In practice law is not a well-wrought urn but the purveyor of tortuous vagaries.
