Life is half spent before we know what it is.

Love and a cough cannot be hid.
Love your neighbor, yet pull not down your hedge.
Marry your son when you will: your daughter when you can.
My house, my house, though thou art small, thou art to me the Escurial.
For want of a nail, the shoe is lost; for want of a shoe the horse is lost; and for want of a horse the rider is lost.
By all means use sometimes to be alone.

Follow not truth too near the heels, lest it dash out thy teeth.
Be useful where thou livest.
A verse may find him who a sermon flies.
