Bad excuses are worse than none
Quote by Thomas Fuller
Accusing the times is but excusing ourselves
We have all forgot more than we remember
He that hopes no good fears no ill.
All things are difficult before they are easy.
He that travels much knows much.
Enquire not what boils in another's pot
A gift, with a kind countenance, is a double present.
Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
All the molestations of marriage are abundantly recompensed with the other comforts which God bestoweth...
Be a friend to thyself and others will too
He's my friend that speaks well of me behind my back.
He lives long that lives well, and time misspent is not lived, but lost.
A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.
Fame is the echo of actions, resounding them to the world, save that the echo...
Pride will spit in pride's face.
He is not poor that hath not much, but he that craves much.
Scalded cats fear even cold water.
We ought to see far enough into a hypocrite to see even his sincerity.
Better to be known as a sinner than a hypocrite.
Every reader should remember the diffidence of Socrates, and repair by his candour the injuries...
