Down on your knees, and thank heaven, fasting, for a good man's love.
Do not plan for ventures before finishing what's at hand.
Danger gleams like sunshine to a brave man's eyes.
Fortune truly helps those who are of good judgment.
I would prefer as friend a good man ignorant than one more clever who is evil too.
The greatest pleasure of life is love.
The best of seers is he who guesses well.
Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
Luckier than one's neighbor, but still not happy.
The lucky person passes for a genius.
In misfortune, which friend remains a friend?
Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.
Whoso neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future.
When a man's stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor.
He was a wise man who originated the idea of God.
There is something in the pang of change More than the heart can bear, Unhappiness remembering happiness.
To persevere, trusting in what hopes he has, is courage in a man.
Chance fights ever on the side of the prudent.
Life has no blessing like a prudent friend.
