The doors of wisdom are never shut.
When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.
Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence.
He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
To lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.
Nine men in ten are would be suicides.
I would rather have it said, “He lived usefully”, than, “He died rich”.
He that has once done you a kindness will be more ready to do you another, than he whom you yourself have obliged.
