Don't be in perpetual contradiction with others
Seventhly, there are some characters in perpetual contradiction with the opinions of others. To rouse a dispute, it suffices for them to see an opinion followed by the greater number. This inveterate inclination ought to be destroyed as soon as it manifests itself.
We do not love people so much for the good they have done us, as for the good we do them.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
