Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me, With faith, with hope, with charity, That I may run, rise, rest with Thee.

His bark is worse than his bite.
Be not too presumptuously sure in any business; for things of this world depend on such a train of unseen chances that if it were in man's hands to set the tables, still he would not be certain to win the game.
Light burdens, long borne, grow heavy.
None knows the weight of another's burden.
The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one.
Be calm in arguing; for fierceness makes Error a fault and truth discourtesy.

Calmness is great advantage; he that lets Another chafe, may warm him at his fire.
The best smell is bread; the best savor, salt; the best love, that of children.
