Never contend with a man who has nothing to lose.
Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone.
He that can live alone resembles the brute beast in nothing, the sage in much, and God in everything.
A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself.
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.
Never compete with someone who has nothing to lose.
Hope is a great falsifier. Let good judgment keep her in check.
Friendship multiplies the good of life and divides the evil.
Hope has a good memory, gratitude a bad one.
