Eyes are afraid, but hands are doing the job.
The miser and the open-handed spend the same in long run.
He that gives to a grateful man puts out to usury.
Better a distant good than a near evil.
Better a patch than a hole.
Every time you have something good there is someone who wants you to throw it so as they can pick it.
He is a man, who acts like a man.
Reason succeeds where force fails.
Fools gawp at masterpieces - wise men set out to outdo masterpieces.
