Fearfulness, contrary to all other vices, maketh a man think the better of another, the worse of himself.
      - [Fear]

For as much as to understand and to be mighty are great qualities, the higher that they be, they are so much the less to be esteemed if goodness also abound not in the possessor.
      - [Greatness]

Fortify courage with the true rampart of patience.
      - [Patience]

Friendship is made fast by interwoven benefits.
      - [Friendship]

Give tribute, but not oblation, to human wisdom.
      - [Appreciation]

God has appointed us captains of this our bodily fort, which, without treason to that majesty, are never to be delivered over till they are demanded.
      - [Suicide]

Gold can gild a rotten stick, and dirt sully an ingot.
      - [Gold]

Great captains do never use long orations when it comes to the point of execution.
      - [Brevity]

Great is not great to the greater.
      - [Greatness]

Happiness is a sunbeam, which may pass through a thousand bosoms without losing a particle of its original ray.
      - [Happiness]

He cometh unto you with a tale which holdeth children from play, and old men from the chimney corner.
      - [Story Telling]

He sought to have that by practice which he could not by prayer.
      - [Practice]

He travels safe and not unpleasantly who is guarded by poverty and guided by love.
      - [Poverty]

He whom passion rules, is bent to meet his death.
