If you wish to be loved; love
Fidelity that is bought with money may be overcome with money
Excessive power sees power beyond its power
He is most powerful who has power over himself

We should every night call ourselves to an account; What infirmity have I mastered today?...
Economy is too late when you are at the bottom of your purse...
The sun also shines on the wicked
The belly will not listen to advice.
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.

He who boasts of his ancestry praises the merits of another
