The best is the cheapest.
Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.
Who is rich? He that rejoices in his portion.
The discontented man finds no easy chair.

The eye of the master will do more work than both his hands.
You can not pluck roses without fear of thorns, Nor enjoy a fair wife without danger of horns.
To the generous mind the heaviest debt is that of gratitude, when it is not in our power to repay it.
It is the eyes of other people that ruin us. If all but myself were blind, I should want neither a fine house nor fine furniture.
Leisure is the time for doing something useful.
