Miguel de Cervantes
There is remedy for all things except death
The truth may be stretched thin, but it never breaks, and it always surfaces above lies, as oil floats on water
El que lee mucho y anda mucho, ve mucho y sabe mucho : He who reads a lot and walks a lot, sees a lot and knows a lot
Hunger is the best sauce in the world
It is a natural condition of women to despise those who love them and love those who hate them
For neither good nor evil can last for ever; and so it follows that as evil has lasted a long time, good must now be close at hand
Virtue is persecuted by the wicked more than it is loved by the good
I do not deny that what happened to us is a thing worth laughing at. But it is not worth telling, for not everyone is sufficiently intelligent to be able to see things from the right point of view
Until death it is all life
Take my advice and live for a long, long time. Because the maddest thing a man can do in this life is to let himself die
The wounds received in battle bestow honor, they do not take it away...
Wit and humor do not reside in slow minds
Hope is always born at the same time as love.
A tooth is much more to be prized than a diamond
The most perceptive character in a play is the fool, because the man who wishes to seem simple cannot possibly be a simpleton.
...without intelligence, there can be no humour
Where envy reigns virtue can't exist, and generosity doesn't go with meanness.
Not with whom you are born, but with whom you are bred.
Where there's music there can be no evil
He is most blessed who loves the most, the freest who is most enslaved by love
Laughter distances us from that which is ugly and therefore potentially distressing, and indeed enables us to obtain paradoxical pleasure and therapeutic benefit from it
There are many hours and minutes between now and tomorrow and in any one of them-even in a minute, the house falls
Time has more power to undo and change things than the human will
One man is no more than another, if he do no more than what another does
There is no recollection which time does not put an end to, and no pain which death does not remove.
Where one door shuts, another opens
He praise of the wise few is more important than the mockery of the foolish many
What covers you discovers you
Everything I have done, am doing, and shall do follows the dictates of reason and the laws of chivalry
Only make yourself honey and the flies will suck you
He who has the good to his hand and chooses the bad, that the good he complains of may not come to him
It is by rugged paths like these they go That scale the heights of immortality, Unreached by those that falter here below
..let his sin be his punishment, let him eat it with his bread, and let that be an end to it.
..mountains breed learned men and shepherds' huts house philosophers
Many were the offenses to be undone, the wrongs to be rectified, the grievances to be redressed, the abuses to be corrected and the debts to be satisfied.
