Vices are their own punishment
Quote by Aesop
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
It is in vain to expect our prayers to be heard, if we do not...
The unhappy derive comfort from the misfortunes of others.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you...
Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten.
Example is the best precept.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing...
Plodding wins the race.
Better to starve free than be a fat slave
He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
Enemies' promises were made to be broken
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
