A Quote by Bruce Jay Friedman on behavior, friendship, goals, honor, justice, wives, women, and world

A Code of Honor: Never approach a friend's girlfriend or wife with mischief as your goal. There are just too many women in the world to justify that sort of dishonorable behavior. . . . Unless she's really attractive.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on death, debt, honor, hope, hunger, idleness, life, needs, profit, taxes, trade, and wishes

Industry need not wish, and he that lives upon hopes will die fasting. There are no gains without pains. He that hath a trade hath an estate, and he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor; but then the trade must be worked at and the calling followed, or neither the estate nor the office will enable us to pay our taxes. If we are industrious, we shall never starve; for at the workingman's house hunger looks in, but dares not enter. Nor will the bailiff or the constable enter, for industry pays debts, while idleness and neglect increase them.
