It is not poor that hath not much, but he that craves much.

Of Edward Grindall: Worldly wealth he cared not for, desiring only to make both ends meet.

What a day may bring, a day may take away.
A good garden may have some weeds.

Believe and live according to belief.
A great man will not trample upon a worm, nor sneak to an emperor.
