3.80: If you've known yourself, you will understand many, great and wonderful things. Because, thinking that you know doesn't let you progress in knowing.

1.95: The sun of justice, rising into the clean mind, reveals himself and the reasons of all that He created and will create.

4.61: Love defeats those three, self-deception, because she is not proud. Interior envy, because she is not jealous. Exterior envy, because she is generous and serene.

3.80: Σεαυτὸν ἐπιγνούς, συνήσεις πολλὰ καὶ μεγάλα καὶ θαυμαστὰ πράγματα. ἐπεὶ τὸ νομίζειν εἰδέναι, οὐκ ἐᾷ προκόπτειν εἰς τὸ εἰδέναι.

1.95: ὁ τῆς δικαιοσύνης ἥλιος, τῷ καθαρῷ νῷ ἀνατέλλων, καὶ ἑαυτὸν δείκνυσι καὶ πάντων τῶν ὑπ΄ αὐτοῦ γεγονότων καὶ γενησομένων τοὺς λόγους.

4.61: ἡ οὖν ἀγάπη τὰ τρία ἀνατρέπει. τὴν μὲν οἴησιν, ἐπειδὴ οὐ φυσιοῦται. τὸν δὲ ἔνδον φθόνον, ἐπεὶ οὐ ζηλοῖ. τὸν δὲ ἔξωθεν, ἐπειδὴ μακροθυμεῖ καὶ χρηστεύεται.
