Fame sometimes hath created something of nothing.
The first faults are theirs that commit them; The second theirs that permit them.
The lion is not so fierce as painted.

It is best to live as friends with those in time with whom we would be to all eternity.
There is a scarcity of friendship, but not of friends.
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.
He is happy that knoweth not himself to be otherwise
