 << Prev Page    Displaying page 4 of 4

True wisdom, laboring to expound, heareth others readily;
  False wisdom, sturdy to deny, closeth up her mind to argument.
      - [Wisdom]

Verily, O man, with truth for thy theme, eloquence shall throne thee with archangels.
      - [Eloquence]

Verily, there is nothing so true that the damps of error hath not warp'd it.
      - [Error]

Wealth hath never given happiness, but often hastened misery; enough hath never caused misery but often quickened happiness.
      - [Wealth]

Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.
      - [Silence]

When thou choosest a wife, think not only of thyself, but of those God may give thee of her, that they reproach thee not for their being.
      - [Marriage]

Who can wrestle against Sleep?--Yet is that giant very gentleness.
      - Of Beauty [Sleep]

Clamorous pauperism feastest
  While honest Labor, pining, hideth his sharp ribs.
      - Of Discretion [Labor]

A babe in a house is a well-spring of pleasure.
      - Of Education [Babyhood]

Deceit and treachery skulk with hatred, but an honest spirit flieth with anger.
      - Of Hatred and Anger [Deceit]

God, from a beautiful necessity, is Love.
      - Of Immortality [God]

A good book is the best of friends, the same to-day and for ever.
      - Proverbial Philosophy Series I--Of Reading
        [Books]

There is a limit to enjoyment, though the sources of wealth be boundless,
  And the choicest pleasures of life lie with the ring of moderation.
      - Proverbial Philosophy--Of Compensation
         (l. 15) [Moderation]

Naples sitteth by the sea, keystone of an arch of azure.
      - Proverbial Philosophy--Of Death (l. 53)
        [Naples]

Confidence is conqueror of men; victorious both over them and in them;
  The iron will of one stout heart shall make a thousand quail:
    A feeble dwarf, dauntlessly resolved, will turn the tide of a battle,
      And rally to a nobler strife the giants that had fled.
      - Proverbial Philosophy--Of Faith (l. 11)
        [Confidence]

Economy, the poor man's mint.
      - Proverbial Philosophy--Of Society (l. 191)
        [Economy]

Terms ill defined, and forms misunderstood,
  And customs, when their reasons are unknown,
    Have stirred up many zealous souls
      To fight against imaginary giants.
      - Proverbial Philosophy--Of Tolerance [Zeal]
