'Tis skill, not strength, that governs a ship.
Prayer: the key of the day and the lock of the night.
Be not extravagantly high in expression of thy commendations of men thou likest it may make the hearers stomach rise.
Let not thy will roar when thy power can but whisper.
If thou art a master, be sometimes blind; if a servant, sometimes deaf.
The grave is the general meeting place.
