He that speaks truth must have one foot in the stirrup.
He that is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
He alone is wise who can accommodate himself to all contingencies of life; but the fool contends, and struggles like a swimmer against the stream.
Have old memories but young hopes.
Happy is he whose friends were born before him.
Govern a family as you would cook a small fish - very gently.
Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names.
Charm is more than just beauty.
He who foretells the future lies, even if he tells the truth.
A friend that you buy, will be bought from you.
