The sleeping fox catches no poultry.
Quote by Benjamin Franklin
My rule, in which I have always found satisfaction, is, never to turn aside in...
The thrifty maxim of the wary Dutch, Is to save all the Money they can...
Hide not your talents, they for use were made. Whats a sundial in the shade?
God heals and the doctor takes the fee.
Why does the blind man's wife paint herself
Constant dropping wears away stones

A penny saved is a penny earned.
How many observe Christ's birthday! How few his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays...
Poverty wants some things, Luxury many things, Avarice all things
Games lubricate the body and the mind.
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor liberty to purchase power.
Where there is marriage without love, there will be love without marriage.
Savages we call them because their manners differ from ours.
Nine men in ten are would be suicides.
In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires.
