One today is worth two tomorrows.
No nation was ever ruined by trade.
Truth and sincerity have a certain distinguishing native lustre about them which cannot be perfectly counterfeited; they are like fire and flame, that cannot be painted.
Don't think to hunt two hares with one dog.
An undutiful daughter will prove an unmanageable wife.
A spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar.
Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich.
It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow it.
It is better to be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
