He who has lost honor can lose nothing more.
From mistakes of others a wise man correcteth his own.
While we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity.
Other people's things are more pleasing to us, and ours to other people. -Aliena nobis, nostra plus aliis placent
The pain of the mind is worse than the pain of the body.
An over-taxed patience gives way to fierce anger. -Furor fit læsa sæpius patientia
