If a man could have just half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.
What maintains one vice would bring up two children.
I believe long habits of virtue have a sensible effect on the countenance.
Sometime we may learn more from a man's errors than from his virtues.
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.
