There is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.
      - [Gifts]

There is no great genius free from some tincture of madness.
      - [Genius]

There is none made so great but he may both need the help and service, and stand in fear of the power and unkindness, even of the meanest of mortals.
      - [Dependence]

There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage.
      - [Courage]

There is nothing more disgraceful than that an old man should have nothing to produce as a proof that he has lived long except his years.
      - [Age]

There is nothing that we can properly call our own but our time, and yet everybody fools us out of it who has a mind to do it. If a man borrows a paltry sum of money, there must needs be bonds and securities, and every common civility is presently charged upon account. But he who has my time thinks he owes me nothing for it, though it be a debt that gratitude itself can never repay.
      - [Time]

They who have light in themselves will not revolve as satellites.
      - [Originality]

Those griefs burn most which gall in secret.
      - [Proverbs]

Those things on which philosophy has set its seal are beyond the reach of injury; no age will discard them or lessen their force, each succeeding century will add somewhat to the respect in which they are held; for we look upon what is near us with jealous eyes, but we admire what is further off with less prejudice. The wise man's life, therefore, includes much; he is not hedged in by the same limits which confine others; he alone is exempt from the laws by which mankind is governed; all ages serve him like a god. If any time be past he recalls it by his memory, if it be present he uses it, if it be future be anticipates it; his life is a long one because he concentrates all times into it.
      - [Wisdom]

Time hath often cured the wound which reason failed to heal.
      - [Proverbs]

Time is the greatest remedy for anger.
      - [Time]

To give and to lose is nothing; but to lose and to give still is the part of a great mind.
      - [Circumstance]

To make a commencement requires a mental effort.
      - [Proverbs]

To make another person hold his tongue, be you first silent.
      - [Discretion]

To meditate an injury is to commit one.
      - [Proverbs]

To taste many things bespeaks but a poor appetite. [To engage in a multiplicity of studies shows but a weak mind.]
      - [Proverbs]

To things which you bear with impatience you should accustom yourself, and, by habit you will bear them well.
      - [Habit]

To wish to be cured is half way towards cure.
      - [Proverbs]

Trifling trouble find utterance; deeply felt pangs are silent.
      - [Trouble]

True friends are the whole world to one another; and he that is a friend to himself is also a friend to mankind. Even in my studies the greatest delight I take is of imparting it to others; for there is no relish to me in the possessing of anything without a partner.
      - [Friends]

True joy is a serene and sober motion; and they are miserably out so that take laughing for rejoicing; the seat of it is within, and there is no cheerfulness like the resolutions of a brave mind.
      - [Cheerfulness]

Truth will never be tedious unto him that travelleth in the secrets of nature; there is nothing but falsehood that glutteth us.
      - [Truth]

Vice is contagious, and there is no trusting the sound and the sick together.
      - [Vice]

Virtue hath no virtue if it be not impugned; then appeareth how great it is, of what value and power it is, when by patience it approveth what it works.
      - [Virtue]

Virtue is shut out from no one; she is open to all, accepts all, invites all, gentlemen, freedmen, slaves, kings, and exiles; she selects neither house nor fortune; she is satisfied with a human being without adjuncts.
      - [Virtue]
