To speak and to speak well are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.
Who falls for love of God, shall rise a star.
Chance will not do the work. Chance sends the breeze;But if the pilot slumber at the helm,The very wind that wafts us tow’rds the portMay dash us on the shoals. The steersman’s partIs vigilance, or blow it rough or smooth.
Who will not judge him worthy to be robbed That sets his doors wide open to a thief, And shows the felon where his treasure lies?
The man that is once hated, both his good and his evil deeds oppress him.
Well, as he brews, so shall he drink.
To men pressed by their wants all change is ever welcome.
Drink today, and drown all sorrow; You shall perhaps not do it tomorrow; Best, while you have it, use your breath; There is no drinking after death.
Neither do thou lust after that tawny weed tobacco.
Heaven prepares good men with crosses; but no ill can happen to a good man.
Passions are spiritual rebels and raise sedition against the understanding.
A good man should and must Sit rather down with loss than rise unjust.
