A man of great memory without learning hath a rock and a spindle and no staff to spin
Quote by George Herbert
The best mirror is an old friend.
Calmness is always Godlike
It is part of a poor spirit to undervalue himself and blush.
Living well is the best revenge.
He that hath lost his credit is dead to the world.
There would be no great men if there were no little ones.
Love, and a cough, cannot be hid.
The eyes have one language everywhere
The mouse that hath but one hole is quickly taken.
Life is half spent before we know what it is.
Storms make the oak grow deeper roots.
There would be no great ones if there were no little ones
Many kiss the hand they wish cut off.
Read as you taste fruit or savor wine, or enjoy friendship, love or life.
You must lose a fly to catch a trout
In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.
Be calm in arguing; for fierceness makes error a fault, and truth discourtesy.
The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one.
He that is not handsome at 20, nor strong at 30, nor rich at 40,...
Good words are worth much, and cost little.
