«Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour when every one has to throw off his mask? Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked? Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it? I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;... In every man there is something which to a certain degree prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself; and this may be the case in so high a degree, he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself. But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love, and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.»
«However fiercely opposed one may be to the present order, an old respect for the idea of order itself often prevents people from distinguishing between order and those who stand for order, and leads them in practice to respect individuals under the pretext of respecting order itself.»
«Habit is a second nature which prevents us from knowing the first, of which it has neither the cruelties nor the enchantments»
«Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.»
«In a healthy nation there is a kind of dramatic balance between the will of the people and the government, which prevents its degeneration into tyranny.»
«Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.»
«A good and wholesome thing is a little harmless fun in this world; it tones a body up and keeps him human and prevents him from souring.»
