Happiness consists more in small conveniences of pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom to a man in the course of his life.
Haste makes waste.
He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of the most medicines.
Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech. Written when he was 16.
Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste.
Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.
He does not possess wealth that allows it to possess him.
