BALFOUR, Francis Maitland Quotes
(1851-1882), English biologist
The ambiguous livery worn alike by modesty and shame.
Destiny is the scapegoat which we make responsible for all our crimes and follies; a necessity which we set down for invincible when we have no wish to strive against it.
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that wii! make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.
A mouse-trap: easy to enter but not easy to get out of.
