Beauty is such a fleeting blossom, how can wisdom rely upon its momentary delight?
      - [Beauty]

Busily engaged in doing nothing. [A squirrel in a cage.]
      - [Proverbs]

Caution comes too late when we are in the midst of evils.
      - [Proverbs]

Concealed anger is to be feared; but hatred openly manifested destroys its chance of revenge.
      - [Proverbs]

Consider an enemy may become a friend.
      - [Enemies : Proverbs]

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful, where your own self-love might impair your judgment.
      - [Counsel]

Corporeal punishment falls far more heavily than most weighty pecuniary penalty.
      - [Punishment]

Crime oft recoils upon the author's head.
      - [Proverbs]

Crime requires further crime to conceal it.
      - [Proverbs]

Death falls heavily on that man who, known too well to others, dies in ignorance of himself.
      - [Proverbs]

Death is a release from and an end of all pains.
      - [Death]

Death is the wish of some, the relief of many, and the end of all. It sets the slave at liberty, carries the banished man home, and places all mortals on the same level, insomuch that life itself were a punishment without it.
      - [Death]

Difficulties strengthen the mind, as well as labor does the body.
      - [Difficulties]

Dissembling profiteth nothing; a feigned countenance, and slightly forged externally, deceiveth but very few.
      - [Falsehood]

Do what you should, not what you may.
      - [Proverbs]

Do you desire not to be angry? Be not inquisitive. He who inquires what is said of him only works out his own misery.
      - [Proverbs]

Elegance is not an ornament worthy of man.
      - [Elegance]

Every cock fights best on his own dunghill.
      - [Proverbs]

Everything in art is but a copy of nature.
      - [Proverbs]

Everything that exceeds the bounds of moderation has an unstable foundation.
      - [Moderation]

Expediency often silences justice.
      - [Expediency]

Extreme remedies are never the first to be resorted to.
      - [Proverbs]

Eyes will not see when the heart wishes them to be blind. Desire conceals truth as darkness does the earth.
      - [Eyes]

Fidelity, purchased with money, money can destroy.
      - [Money : Proverbs]

Fortune dreads the brave, and is only terrible to the coward.
      - [Fortune]
