Pursue not a victory too far. He hath conquered well that hath made his enemy fly; thou mayest beat him to a desperate resistance, which may ruin thee.
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.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, A box where sweets compacted lie.

By all means use sometimes to be alone.
