Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow, a herb most bruised is woman.
Judge a tree from its fruit; not from the leaves.
Do not plan for ventures before finishing what’s at hand.
That glittering hope is immemorial and beckons many men to their undoing.
For a silence and a chaste reserve is genuine praise, and to remain quiet within the house.
There is one thing alone that stands the brunt of life throughout its length: a quiet conscience.
Money is the wise man’s religion
Much effort, much prosperity.
What we look for does not come to pass;
God finds a way for what none foresaw.
When a good man is hurt all who would be called good must suffer with him.
Human misery must somewhere have a stop; there is no wind that always blows a storm.
People that seem so glorious are all show; underneath they are like everyone else.
Slight not what’s near, while aiming at what’s far.
