That which we call wit consists much in quickness and tricks, and is so full of lightness that it seldom goes with judgment and solidity; but when they do meet, it is commonly in an honest man.
      - [Wit]

When a man makes up his mind to thrash another, he must also make up his mind to be a little thrashed himself.
      - [Proverbs]

To make the plough go before the horse.
      - Letter to the Lord Keeper [Order]

God gives not kings the stile of Gods in vaine,
  For on his throne his sceptre do they sway;
    And as their subjects ought them to obey,
      So kings should feare and serve their God againe.
      - Sonnet Addressed to his son, Prince Henry
        [Royalty]
