1)There are only two people who can tell you the truth about yourself - an enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly.
2)Observe your enemies, for they first find out your faults.
3)A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.
4)Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion.
5)Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
6)There is nothing permanent except change.
7)All formal dogmatic religions are fallacious and must never be accepted by self-respecting persons as final.
