Life is a short affair; we should try to make it smooth, and free from strife.
Life is short, yet sweet.
Love's all in all to women.
Man doom'd to care, to pain, disease, and strife,
Walks his short journey through the vale of life,
Watchful, attends the cradle and the grave,
And passing generations longs to save:
Last dies himself; yet wherefore should we mourn?
For man must to his kindred dust return;
Submit to the destroying hand of fate,
As ripen'd ears the harvest-sickle wait.
Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife.
Money is the wise man's religion.
My hands are clean, but my heart has somewhat of impurity.
Neither earth nor ocean produces a creature as savage and monstrous as woman.
New faces have more authority than accustomed ones.
Nothing has more strength than dire necessity.
O virtue, I have followed you through life, and find you at last but a shade.
Often a noble face hides filthy ways.
Oh, trebly blest the placid lot of those whose hearth foundations are in pure love laid, where husband's breast with tempered ardor glows, and wife, oft mother, is in heart a maid!
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
Only a madman would give good for evil.
People that seem so glorious are all show; underneath they are like everyone else.
Poverty possesses this disease; through want it teaches a man evil.
Real friendship is shown in times of trouble; prosperity is full of friends.
Silence and chaste reserve is woman's genuine praise, and to remain quiet within the house.
Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
The best of seers is he who guesses well.
- [Prophecy (Prophesy)]
The best prophet is common sense, our native wit.
- [Common Sense]
The language of truth is simple.
The wavering mind is a base property.
