Why harass with eternal purposes a mind to weak to grasp them?
That destructive siren, sloth, is ever to be avoided.
The lofty pine is oftenest shaken by the winds; High towers fall with a heavier crash; And the lightning strikes the highest mountain.
Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
I hate the irreverent rabble and keep them far from me.
It is your business when the wall next door catches fire.
