Behold, how rich and beautiful are the works of nature!
What a bountiful provision is made for our wants and
pleasures! — Surely, the author of so many blessings is
worthy of our love and gratitude!
AVithout a friend the world is but a wilderness.
A man may have a thousand intimate acquaintances,
and not one friend among them all. If you have one
friend, think yourself happy.
Prosperity gains friends, and adversity tries them.
Ingratitude is a crime so shameful, that the man was
never yet found, who would acknowledge himself guilty
of it.
When our vices leave us, we flatter ourselves that we
leave them.
Anger may glance into the breast of a wise man, but
rests only in the bosom of the fool.
To err is human; to forgive, divine.
It happens to men of learning, as to ears of corn; they
shoot up, and raise their heads high, while they are
empty; but, when full, and swelled with grain, they begin
to flag and droop.
lie, who tells a lie, is not sensible how great a task
he undeitakes: for he must be forced, to invent twenty
more , to maintain that one.
Pride should be by young men carefully avoided, by
old men utterly despised, and by all men suspected and
feared.
Some things are wanting to poverty, but all things are
wanting to avaiice.
We are always complaining that our days are few, and
acting, as if there would be no end of them.
