Learning hath gained most by those books by which printers have lost.
Quote by Thomas Fuller
Enquire not what boils in another's pot
The patient is not likely to recover who makes the doctor his heir.
Law cannot persuade where it cannot punish
Cruelty is a tyrant that's always attended with fear.
There is more pleasure in loving than in being beloved
With foxes we must play the fox.
The pyramids themselves, doting with age, have forgotten the names of their founders.
He who gives his heart will not deny his money.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it
Pride will spit in pride's face.
Bad excuses are worse than none.
'Tis better to suffer wrong than do it.
Cruelty is a tyrant that's always attended with fear
A lie has no leg, but a scandal has wings.
He does not believe who does not live according to his belief.
The fool wanders, a wise man travels.
All things are difficult before they are easy.
He knows little, who will tell his wife all he knows.
A man is not good or bad for one action.
First get an absolute conquest over thyself, and then thou wilt easily govern thy wife.
