Comparison, more than reality, makes men happy or wretched.
Quote by Thomas Fuller
Change of weather is the discourse of fools.
In fair Weather prepare for foul.
He that has one eye is a prince among those that have none.
He does not believe who does not live according to his belief.
Welcome death, quoth the rat, when the trap fell.
A good garden may have some weeds.
He does not believe that does not live according to his belief
He that knows least commonly presumes most
Great hopes make great men.
Cruelty is a tyrant that's always attended with fear.
Poor men's reasons are not heard.
We are born crying, live complaining, and die disappointed
Memory depends very much on the perspicuity, regularity, and order of our thoughts. Many complain...
Prayer: the key of the day and the lock of the night.
Nothing sharpens sight like envy
Today is yesterday's pupil.
Accusing the times is but excusing ourselves
What a Day may bring a Day may take away.
There are good days and there are bad days, and this is one of them.
Look at things not as they are, but as they can be.
