He who goes to bed hungry dreams of pancakes.
Quote by Proverb
Better have an old man to humor than a young rake to break your heart.
Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.
History repeats itself
Parting is such sweet sorrow
War is much too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military.
Young people don't know what age is, and old people forget what youth was.
I fall back on this journal just as some other poor devil takes to drink
In the midst of life we are in death.
Only fools and horses work
Don't cast your pearls before swine
Beauty is ten, nine of which is dressing.
Of all meat in the world drink goes down the best.
Make happy those who are near, and those who are far will come.
Trade knows neither friends or kindred
Time, which strengthens friendship, weakens love.
Pride comes before a fall
Riches are gotten with pain, kept with care, and lost with grief
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into...
Grief is nature's most powerful aphrodisiac.
If men make war in slavish obedience to rules, they will fail.
