James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Cogito, ergo sum—I think, therefore I am.  1
  Pour savoir quelles étoient véritablement les opinions des hommes, je devois plutôt prendre garde à ce qu’ils pratiquoient qu’à ce qu’ils disoient—To know what men really think, I would pay regard rather to what they do than to what they say.  2
  To know the true opinions of men, one ought to pay more respect to their actions than their words.  3
  When any one has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offence cannot reach it.  4
