Each year, one vicious habit rooted out, in time ought to make the worst man good.
When befriended, remember it: When you befriend, forget it.
He that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing.

Drive thy business or it will drive thee.
Whate'er's begun in anger ends in shame.
Applause waits on success.
Genius is nothing but a greater aptitude for patience.
