For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise.
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Industry need not wish.
I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong
Idleness and pride tax with a heavier hand than kings and governments.
If you wou'd be reveng'd of your enemy, govern your self
There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.
He that cannot obey, cannot command.
Clean your finger before you point at my spots.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
Pride that dines on vanity, sups on contempt
Where sense is wanting, everything is wanting.
The discontented man finds no easy chair.
Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.
Fear to do ill, and you need fear else.
To err is human, to repent divine, to persist devilish
Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.
Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough...
I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.
Experience is a dear teacher, but fools will learn at no other.
