I shall pass through life but once. Let me show kindness now, as I shall not pass this way again.
Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment the treasurer, of a wise man.
No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.

It is a cruel folly to offer up to ostentation so many lives of creatures, as to make up the state of our treats.
We are apt to love praise, but not to deserve it. But if we would deserve it, we must love virtue more than than.
Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.
Passion is the mob of the man, that commits a riot upon his reason.
Rarely promise. But, if lawful, constantly perform.
It is wise not to seek a secret; and honest, not to reveal one.
