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.
George Herbert (1593 - 1633)

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.
