We rise in glory, as we sink in pride: Where boasting ends, there dignity begins.
Truth never was indebted to a lie.
Less base the fear of death than fear of life.
Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.
Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote, And think they grow immortal as they quote.
