Diligence is the mother of good fortune, and idleness – its opposite – never brought a man to the goal of any of his best wishes.
Good actions ennoble us, we are the sons of our own deeds.
Love not what you are but, what you may become.
Time ripens all things, no man is born wise.
To be prepared is half the victory.
Truth indeed rather alleviates than hurts, and will always bear up against falsehood, as oil does above water.
