Thomas Fuller Quotes
If thou art a master, be sometimes blind; if a servant, sometimes deaf.
Better a tooth out than always aching.
Pride will spit in pride's face.
Better be alone than in bad company.
He who gives his heart will not deny his money.
Bad excuses are worse than none
Choose a wife rather by your ear than your eye.
A man in passion rides a horse that runs away with him.
Care and diligence bring luck.
He's my friend that speaks well of me behind my back.
There is more pleasure in loving than in being beloved.
Better break your word than do worse in keeping it.
Money is the best bait to fish for man with
Comparison, more than reality, makes men happy or wretched.
An ounce of cheerfulness is worth a pound of sadness to serve God with
A little skill in antiquity inclines a man to Popery.
Music is nothing else but wild sounds civilized into time and tune.
A man is not good or bad for one action.
The devil lies brooding in the miser's chest.
A man's best fortune, or his worst, is his wife.
