The coward only threatens when he is safe.
Talent is nurtured in solitude; character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Self-knowledge comes from knowing other men.
Fortune rarely accompanies anyone to the door.
Every step of life shows much caution is required.
A noble person attracts noble people, and knows how to hold on to them.
A day of favour’s like a harvest day; We must be occupied, so soon ’tis gone!
