In charity there is no excess.
Wise men make more opportunities than they find.
The way of fortune is like the milkyway in the sky; which is a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together: so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate.
The specious meditations, speculations, and theories of mankind are but a kind of insanity, only there is no one to stand by and observe it.
Crafty men condemn studies; Simple men admire them; And wise men use them: For they teach not their own use: but that is a wisdom without them, and above them, won by observation.
