Each year one vicious habit rooted out, in time might make the worst man good throughout.
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
I saw few die of hunger; of eating, a hundred thousand.
Constant dropping wears away stones
Revelation, indeed, as such had no influence on my mind

Three removes are as bad as a fire
I hope... that mankind will at length, as they call themselves reasonable creatures, have reason...
How many observe Christ's birthday! How few his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays...

Games lubricate the body and the mind.

Those things that hurt, instruct.
A great empire, like a great cake, is most easily diminished at the edges.

Hear reason, or she'll make you feel her.
Human felicity is produced not as much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom...
Leisure is time for doing something useful; this leisure the diligent man will obtain, but...
I need so much time for doing nothing that I have no time for work.
The soul is dyed with the color of its leisure thoughts.
