4. We love not person but his faculties.

5. The thought changes depending on the words that express it.

6. The notion of justice is as subject to fashion as women’s jewelry.

7. The heart has arguments the mind isn’t aware of.

8. Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature, but he is a thinking reed.
