Education of youth is not a bow for every man to shoot in that counts himself a teacher; but will require sinews almost equal to those which Homer gave to Ulysses.
      - [Teaching]

Eloquence the soul, song charms the senses.
      - [Eloquence]

Embryos and idiots, eremites and friars,
  White, black, and grey, with all their trumpery.
      - [Clergymen]

Equally inured by moderation either state to bear, prosperous or adverse.
      - [Moderation]

Evil into the mind of god or man may come and go, so unapproved, and leave no spot or blame behind.

Evil news rides post, while good news bates.
      - [News]

Evil, be thou my good.
      - [Evil]

Extol not riches then, the toil of fools,
  The wise man's cumbrance, if not snare, more apt
    To slacken virtue, and abate her edge,
      Than prompt her to do aught may merit praise.
      - [Riches]

Faithful found among the faithless.
      - [Fidelity]

Farewell hope, and with hope farewell fear;
  Farewell remorse; all good to me is lost;
    Evil, be thou my good!
      - [Despair]

Flesh of flesh,
  Bone of my bone, thou art, and from thy state
    Mine never shall be parted, bliss or woe.
      - [Fidelity]

For books are as meats and viands are; some of good, some of evil sub-stance.
      - [Books]

For evil news rides post, while good news baits.
      - [News : Proverbs]

For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime,
  Young Lycidas, and hath not left his peer.
      - [Proverbs]

For not to irksome toil, but to delight, He made us.
      - [Tediousness]

For the air of youth,
  Hopeful and cheerful, in thy blood will reign
    A melancholy damp of cold and dry
      To weigh thy spirits down, and last consume
        The balm of life.
      - [Proverbs]

For what is glory but the blaze of fame?
      - [Glory]

For who knows not that truth is strong, next to the Almighty; she needs no politics, nor stratagems, nor licensings to make her victorious; those are the shifts and the defenses that error uses against her power: give her but room, and do not bind her when she sleeps.
      - [Truth]

For wonderful indeed are all His works,
  Pleasant to know, and worthiest to be all
    Had in remembrance always with delight;
      But what created mind can comprehend
        Their number, or the wisdom infinite
          That brought them forth, but hid their causes deep?
      - [Creation]

Forget thyself to marble.
      - [Forgetfulness]

Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.
      - [Liberty]

God has set labor and rest, as day and night to men successive.
      - [Labor]

God hath here varied His bounty so with new delights!
      - [Variety]

God made thee perfect, not immutable;
  And good he made thee, but to persevere
    He left it in thy pow'r; ordained thy will
      By nature free, not over-rul'd by fate
        Inextricable, or strict necessity.
      - [Will]

God, who oft descends to visit men
  Unseen, and through their habitations walks
    To mark their doings.
      - [God]
