The man who does things makes many mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all - doing nothing.
Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it.
After three days men grow weary, of a wench , a guest, and weather rainy.

All would live long, but none would be old.
At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment.

Genius is nothing but a greater aptitude for patience.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
He that hath a trade hath an estate; he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor.
