If a man could have just half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.
A word to the wise is enough, and many words won't fill a bushel.

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.
Don't think to hunt two hares with one dog.
An undutiful daughter will prove an unmanageable wife.
