Adversity is the diamond dust Heaven polishes its jewels with.
You don't want a million answers as much as you want a few forever questions. The questions are diamonds you hold in the light. Study a lifetime and you see different colors from the same jewel.
Wit must be foiled by wit: cut a diamond with a diamond.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
