Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
Be civil to all; sociable to many; familiar with few.
Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.
At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgement.
Applause waits on success.
Work as if you were to live a hundred years. Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.
An undutiful daughter will prove an unmanageable wife.
Work while it is called today, for you know not how much you will be hindered tomorrow. One today is worth two tomorrow's; never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.
A wolf eats sheep but now and then, ten thousands are devoured by men
A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one.
