Laws too gentle are seldom obeyed; too severe, seldom executed.
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Without justice, courage is weak.
How many observe Christ's birthday! How few his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays...
I hope... that mankind will at length, as they call themselves reasonable creatures, have reason...
Fond pride of dress is sure a very curse
Fear not death for the sooner we die, the longer we shall be immortal.
Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
Be neither silly, nor cunning, but wise
Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.
Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it.
He that drinks fast pays slow
Hear not ill of a friend, nor speak any of an enemy.
A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.
Promises may fit the friends, but non-performance will turn them into enemies.
Hear reason, or shell make you feel her.
Rules to find out a fit Measure of Meat and Drink.
He'll cheat without scruple, who can without fear
Remember, that time is money.
Leisure is time for doing something useful; this leisure the diligent man will obtain, but...
Employ thy time well, if thou meanest to gain leisure.
I need so much time for doing nothing that I have no time for work.
