He's happy who, far away from business, like the races of men of old, tills his ancestral fields with his own oxen, unbound by any interest to pay.

The musician who always plays on the same string is laughed at

A heart well prepared for adversity in bad times hopes, and in good times fears...

It is an undoubted truth, that the less one has to do, the less time...
Why do you hasten to remove anything which hurts your eye, while if something affects...
Poets wish to profit or to please.
We are free to yield to truth.
