To lie and eat fish demand a lot of skill.
Better own a trifle than want a great deal.
The best memory is not so firm as faded ink.
The maker of laws must be severe; who executes them must be generous.
Ducats are clipped, pence are not.
No one has an exclusive on opportunity. When the sun rises, it rises for everyone.
No friendship can survive the gift of gold.
Weighty work must be done with few words.
He who hath lost his good name how shall he in future gain his living.
