Fortune may rob us of our wealth, not of our courage.
      - [Proverbs]

Golden roofs break men's rest.
      - [Wealth]

Great talent has always a little madness mixed up with it.
      - [Proverbs]

Greatness stands upon a precipice, and if prosperity carries a man never so little beyond his poise, it overbears and dashes him to pieces.
      - [Prosperity]

Hardly a man will you find who could live with his door open.
      - [Toleration]

Haste trips up its own heels, fetters and stops itself.
      - [Haste]

He grieves more than is necessary who grieves before any cause for sorrow has arisen.
      - [Proverbs]

He invites the commission of a crime who does not forbid it, when it is in his power to do so.
      - [Proverbs]

He is a fool who cannot be angry; but he is a wise man who will not.
      - [Anger : Proverbs : Self-control]

He is greedy of life who is not willing to die when the world is perishing around him.
      - [Resignation]

He is most powerful who governs himself.
      - [Proverbs]

He makes a great row but does nothing.
      - [Proverbs]

He may as well not thank at all, who thanks when none are by.
      - [Proverbs]

He sins not, who is not wilfully a sinner.
      - [Proverbs]

He that by harshness of nature rules his family with an iron hand is as truly a tyrant as he who misgoverns a nation.
      - [Tyrants]

He that does good to another does good also to himself, not only in the consequence, but in the very act; for the consciousness of well-doing is in itself ample reward.
      - [Benevolence]

He that lays down precepts for the governing of our lives, and moderating our passions, obliges humanity not only in the present, but in all future generations.
      - [Apothegms]

He that makes himself famous by his eloquence, justice or arms illustrates his extraction, let it be never so mean; and gives inestimable reputation to his parents. We should never have heard of Sophroniscus, but for his son, Socrates; nor of Ariosto and Gryllus, if it had not been for Xenophon and Plato.
      - [Greatness]

He that visits the sick, in hopes of a legacy, let him be never so friendly in all other cases, I look upon him in this to be no better than a raven, that watches a weak sheep only to peck out its eyes.
      - [Covetousness]

He that will do no good offices after a disappointment must stand still, and do just nothing at all. The plough goes on after a barren year; and while the ashes are yet warm, we raise a new house upon the ruins of a former.
      - [Disappointment]

He who asks with timidity invites a refusal.
      - [Proverbs]

He who boasts of his pedigree praises that which does not belong to him.
      - [Proverbs]

He who has wronged you is either stronger or weaker than yourself: be he weaker, spare him; be he stronger, then spare yourself.
      - [Proverbs]

He who is penitent is almost innocent.
      - [Penitence]

He who is sorry for having sinned is almost innocent.
      - [Repentance]
