There’s only one corner of the universe you can be sure of improving, and that’s your own self.
Wealth is the test of a man’s character.
Nurture passes nature.
Sow nothing, reap nothing.
One never lose anything by politeness.
Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions form insufficient premises.
Bad luck often brings good luck.
Clumsy birds have to start flying early.
The wealth of the mind is the only wealth.
A young idler, an old beggar.
Difficult the first time, easy the second.
Life is but a hard and tortuous journey.
