He that can compose himself, is wiser than he that composes books.
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Pride is as loud a beggar as want, and a great deal more saucy
Those that won't be counseled can't be helped.
Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
Drink does not drown care, but waters it, and makes it grow faster.
Why does the blind man's wife paint herself
Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.
When in doubt, don't.
Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.
Well done is better than well said.
Most fools think they are only ignorant.
The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance.
Fatigue is the best pillow
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither...
Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
Rather go to bed with out dinner than to rise in debt.
Read much, but not many books.
Write your injuries in dust, your benefits in marble.
A small leak can sink a great ship.
Tomorrow, every Fault is to be amended; but that Tomorrow never comes.
