The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love, passion.Nadia Boulanger
- Censure is the tax a man pays to the public for being eminent.
- Few persons have sufficient wisdom to prefer censure which is useful to them to praise which deceives them.
- The villain's censure is extorted praise.
- To arrive at perfection, a man should have very sincere friends, or inveterate enemies; because he would be made sensible of his good or ill conduct either by the censures of the one or the admonitions of the others.
