| A scar nobly got is a good livery of honor.|
| The scars of the bodywhat are they, compared to the hidden ones of the heart?|
Madame de Maintenon.
| Who has not raised a tombstone, here and there, over buried hopes and dead joys, on the road of life? Like the scars of the heart, they are not to be obliterated.|
Ninon de Lenclos.
