A scar nobly got is a good livery of honor.


The scars of the body—what 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.
