Every old poem is sacred.
Choose a subject equal to your abilities; think carefully what your shoulders may refuse, and what they are capable of bearing.
Fidelity is the sister of justice.
Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.
He gains everyone's approval who mixes the pleasant with the useful.
Good sense is both the first principal and the parent source of good writing.
Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow.
Force without wisdom falls of its own weight.
He is armed without who is innocent within, be this thy screen, and this thy wall of brass.
