To smell to a turf of fresh earth is wholesome for the body; no less are thoughts of mortality cordial to the soul.

Today is yesterday's pupil.
A fox should not be of the jury at a goose's trial.
Search others for their virtues, and thyself for thy vices.
It is a silly game where nobody wins.
A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them, the better they be.
They that worship God merely from fear, Would worship the devil too, if he appear.
'Tis skill, not strength, that governs a ship. Thomas Fuller, M.D.

Associate with men of judgment, for judgment is found in conversation, and we make another man's judgment ours by frequenting his company.
He is rich that is satisfied.
