A coward calls himself cautious, a miser thrifty.
      - [Proverbs]

A friend always loves, but he who loves is not always a friend.
      - [Proverbs]

A good conscience fears no witnesses, but a guilty conscience is solicitous even in solitude. If we do nothing but what is honest, let all the world know it; but if otherwise, what does it signify to have nobody else know it so long as I know it myself? Miserable is he who slights that witness!
      - [Conscience]

A great fortune is a great slavery.
      - [Riches]

A large library is apt to distract rather than to instruct the learner; it is much better to be confined to a few authors than to wander at random over many.
      - [Libraries]

A multitude of books distracts from the mind.
  [Lat., Distrabit animum librorum multitudo.]
      - [Books : Thinking]

Accustom yourself to that which you bear ill, and you will bear it well.
      - [Patience]

After a bad harvest sow again. [Yield not to difficulties.]
      - [Proverbs]

Alas for the folly of the loquacious!
      - [Talking]

All art is but imitation of nature.
      - [Art]

All cruelty springs from weakness.
      - [Cruelty]

All I desire is, that my poverty may not be a burden to myself, or make me so to others; and that is the best state of fortune that is neither directly necessitous nor far from it. A mediocrity of fortune, with gentleness of mind, will preserve us from fear or envy; which is a desirable condition; for no man wants power to do mischief.
      - [Poverty]

All that lies betwixt the cradle and the grave is uncertain.
      - [Uncertainty]

Although a man has so well purged his mind that nothing can trouble or deceive him any more, yet he reached his present innocence through sin.
      - [Sin]

An old man at school is a contemptible and ridiculous object.
      - [Proverbs]

Anger is like a ruin, which, in falling upon its victim, breaks itself to pieces.
      - [Anger]

Anger is like rain which breaks itself whereon it falls.
      - [Anger]

As fate is inexorable, and not to be moved either with tears or reproaches, an excess of sorrow is as foolish as profuse laughter; while, on the other hand, not to mourn at all is insensibility.
      - [Fate]

As gratitude is a necessary and a glorious, so also is it an obvious, a cheap, and an easy virtue--so obvious that wherever there is life there is place for it, so cheap that the covetous man may be grateful without expense, and so easy that the sluggard may be so likewise without labor.
      - [Gratitude]

As long as the Fates permit, live cheerfully.
      - [Proverbs]

As many servants so many enemies.
      - [Proverbs]

As the soil, however rich it may be, cannot be productive without culture, so the mind, without cultivation, can never produce good fruit.
      - [Culture]

As the world leads we follow.
      - [Custom]

Be not dazzled by beauty, but look for those inward qualities which are lasting.
      - [Quality]

Bear in mind that you commit a crime by injuring even a wicked brother.
      - [Proverbs]
