It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not strive as well as pray.
Always stop to think whether your fun may be the cause of another's unhappiness.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
It is easy to despise what you cannot get.
It is easier to get into the enemys toils than out again.
I will have nought to do with a man who can blow hot and cold with the same breath.
Example is the best precept.
