Praise thyself never.
      - [Modesty]

Precepts are like seeds; they are little things which do much good; if the mind which receives them has a disposition, it must not be doubted that his part contributes to the generation, and adds much to that which has been collected.
      - [Precepts]

Precepts are the rules by which we ought to square our lives. When they are contracted into sentences, they strike the affections; whereas admonition is only blowing of the coal.
      - [Precepts]

      - [Precepts]

Prudence will punish to prevent crime, not to avenge it.

      - [Shame]

Shun no toil to wake yourself remarkable by some talent or other; yet do not devote yourself to one branch exclusively. Strive to get clear notions about all. Give up no science entirely; for science is but one.
      - [Science]

Simple is the language of truth.
      - [Proverbs]

So enjoy the pleasures of the hour as not to spoil those that are to follow.
      - [Proverbs]

So live with an inferior as you would wish a superior to live with you.
      - [Proverbs]

Some pretend want of power to make a competent return; and you shall find in others a kind of graceless modesty, that makes a man ashamed of requiting an obligation, because it is a confession that he has received one.
      - [Obligation]

Speech is the index of the mind.
      - [Speech]

Study rather to fill your mind than your coffers; knowing that gold and silver were originally mingled with dirt, until avarice or ambition parted them.
      - [Avarice]

Success consecrates the foulest grimes.
      - [Success]

Success gives the character of honesty to some classes of wickedness.
