 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 53    Next Page >> 

If I have but enough for myself and family, I am steward only for myself: if I have more, I am but a steward of that abundance for others.
      - [Riches]

If I have enough for myself and family, I am steward only for myself; if I have more, I am but a steward of that abundance for others.
      - [Abundance]

If you walk on snow you cannot hide your footprints.
      - [Evidence]

In cloths cheap handsomeness, doth bear the bell.
      - [Dress]

It is a poor sport that is not worth the candle.
      - [Worth]

Jest not at preacher's language or expression:
  How know'st thou but thy sins made him miscarry?
      - [Preaching]

Keep good company, and you shall be of the number.
      - [Associates]

Least at thine own things laugh.
      - [Laughter]

Let thy mind's sweetness have its operation upon thy body, clothes, and habitation.
      - [Purity]

Lie not, neither to thyself, nor man, nor God. Let mouth and heart be one; beat and speak together, and make both felt in action. It is for cowards to lie.
      - [Cowards]

Lord! who hath praise enough?
      - [Praise]

Lose not thyself, nor give thy humors way;
  God gave them to thee under lock and key.
      - [Passion]

Love bade me welcome, but my soul drew back.
      - [Love]

Money, thou bane of bliss, and source of woe,
  Whence cam'st thou, that thou art so fresh and fine?
    I know thy parentage is base and low:
      Man found thee poor and dirty in a mine.
      - [Wealth]

None is a fool always, everyone sometimes.
      - [Fools]

None knows the weight of another's burden.
      - [Burdens]

O day most calm, most bright,
  The fruit of this, the next world's bud,
    Th' indorsement of supreme delight,
      Writ by a friend, and with his blood;
        The couch of time, care's balm and bay;
          The week were dark, but for thy light;
            Thy torch doth show the way.
      - [Sabbath]

On Sunday heaven's gates stand open.
      - [Sabbath]

One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters.
      - [Mothers]

One hour's sleep before midnight is worth three after.
      - [Proverbs]

Persons unmask their evilest qualities when they do quarrel.
      - [Quarrels]

Play not for gain, but sport. Who plays for more
  Than he can lose with pleasure, stakes his heart;
    Perhaps his wife's too, and whom she hath bore.
      - [Gambling]

Pursue not a victory too far. He hath conquered well that hath made his enemy fly; thou mayest beat him to a desperate resistance, which may ruin thee.
      - [Victory]

Quick believers need broad shoulders.
      - [Credulity]

Rise, heart! thy Lord is risen. Sing His praise
  Without delays.
    Who takes thee by the hand, that thou likewise
      With Him mayst rise--
        That as His death condemned thee to dust,
          His life may make thee gold; and much more just.
      - [Easter]
