A word to the wise is enough, and many words won't fill a bushel.

To be proud of virtue is to poison oneself with the antidote.
Search others for virtues, thyself for thy vices.
Men take more pains to mask than to mend.

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.
We must indeed all hang together, or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.
