A tyrant is most tyrant to himself
Quote by George Herbert
In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.
If a donkey bray at you, don't bray at him.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
Better never begin than never make an end.
A good mother is worth hundreds of schoolmasters.
The mouse that hath but one hole is quickly taken.
The resolved mind hath no cares.
Drink not the third glass, which thou canst not tame, when once it is within...
There is an hour wherein a man might be happy all his life, could he...

Punishment is lame, but it comes
Read as you taste fruit or savor wine, or enjoy friendship, love or life.
The shortest answer is doing.
Love and a cough cannot be hid.
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,...
The offender never pardons.
Deceive not thy physician, confessor, nor lawyer.
