When it comes to gossip, I have to readily admit men are as guilty as women.
A man can smile and smile and be a villain.
When a man is willing and eager, the Gods join in.
Words die and men keep on living.
Women are like books: too much gilding makes men suspicious that the binding is the most important part.
Without men in the neighborhood all the women are chaste.
Wise men sue for offices, and blockheads get them.
Wise men philosophize as the fools live on.
Wise men learn from other men's mistakes; fools insist on learning from their own.
