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.
Wise men change their minds, fools never.
When wise men play mad pranks they do it with a vengeance.
When two poor men help each other, God laughs.
