Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife.

Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far.
Chance fights ever on the side of the prudent.
Slight not what's near, when aiming at what's far.
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
Among mortals second thoughts are the wisest.
Source: Hippolytus, 438.
Second thoughts are ever wiser.
A second wife is hateful to the children of the first; A viper is not more hateful.
Song brings of itself a cheerfulness that wakes the heart of joy.
Who dares not speak his free thoughts is a slave.
