Youth holds no society with grief.
Much effort, much prosperity.
There is nothing like the sight of an old enemy down on his luck.
Youth is the best time to be rich, and the best time to be poor.
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow, a herb most bruised is woman.
Wealth stays with us a little moment if at all: only our characters are steadfast, not our gold.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
The bold are helpless without cleverness.
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
Ignorance of one's misfortunes is clear gain.
But learn that to die is a debt we must all pay.
Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.
Know first who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.
The language of truth is simple.
Some wisdom you must learn from one who's wise.
Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.
Forgive, son; men are men; they needs must err.
Fortune truly helps those who are of good judgment.
To persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man.
That glittering hope is immemorial and beckons many men to their undoing.
