Forgiveness is the noblest revenge.
Fortune knocks but once, but misfortune has much
God hath made us all equal.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.
Happiness is not in doing what you like, but in liking
what you do.
He lives in fame who dies in virtue’s cause.
He travels the fastest who travels alone.
Hold up your head,
Turn out your toes,
Speak when you’re spoken to,
Mend your clothes.
Be always in time,
Too late is a crime.
Hearts, like doors, will open with ease
To very very little keys,
And don’t forget that two of these
Human nature is greedy of novelty.
If a man deceives me once, shame to him; if he deceives
me twice, shame to me.
If all the world were paper,
And all the sea were ink,
And the trees were bread and cheese
What should we do for drink?
If you can’t be clever, be good.
If you want to get rich
I’ll tell you what to do :
Never sit down with a tear or a frown
And paddle your own canoe.
Ignorance is the mother of research.
Imagination is eye of the soul.
