Let honesty and industry be thy constant companions, and spend one penny less than thy clear gains; then shall thy pocket begin to thrive; creditors will not insult, nor want oppress, nor hungerness bite, nor nakedness freeze thee
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Experience is a dear teacher, and only fools will learn from no other.
Hear reason, or she'll make you feel her.
Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.
Some are weather-wise, some are otherwise.
Observe all men; thy self most.
Idleness and pride tax with a heavier hand than kings and governments.
Kill no more pigeons than you can eat.
Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste.
Necessity never made a good bargain.
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life...
Read much, but not many books.
The eye of the master will do more work than both his hands.
When befriended, remember it; when you befriend, forget it.
He that lives upon hope will die fasting
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
The absent are never without fault, nor the present without excuse.
He that drinks fast pays slow
I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives...
Money is a bottomless sea, in which honor, conscience, and truth may be drowned
