Nothing sooner overthrows a weak head than opinion of authority; like too strong liquor for a frail glass.
      - [Authority]

Often extraordinary excellence, not being rightly conceived, does rather offend than please.
      - [Eccentricity]

Open suspecting of others comes of secretly condemning ourselves.
      - [Suspicion]

Our poor eyes were so enriched as to behold, and our low hearts so exalted as to love, a maid who is such, that as the greatest thing the world can show is her beauty, so the least thing that may be praised in her is her beauty.
      - [Attractiveness]

Provision is the foundation of hospitality, and thrift the fuel of magnificence.
      - [Hospitality]

Reason cannot show itself more reasonable than to cease reasoning on things above reason.
      - [Reason]

Reason! how many eyes hast thou to see evils, and how dim, nay, blind, thou art in preventing them.
      - [Reason]

Remember always, that man is a creature whose reason is often darkened with error.
