Tell me my faults and mend your own. Saying and doing have quarreld and parted. Tomorrow every fault is to be amended; but that tomorrow never comes. A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines. Laziness travels so slowly, that poverty soon overtakes him You may delay but time will not. Virtue may always make a face handsome, but Vice will certainly make it ugly. Love and be loved. Trouble springs from idleness; toil from ease. Plow deep, while sluggards sleep and you will shall have corn, to sell and to keep. He that sows thorns, should never go barefoot. When a friend deals with a friend let the bargain be clear and well penned that they may continue friends to the end. He that never eats too much, will never be lazy. Silence is not always a sign of wisdom, but babbling is ever a mark of folly. Great Modesty often hides great merit. If a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship. The doors of wisdom are never shut. Glass, china and reputation are easily cracked and never mended well. A spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar. It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright. Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today. Little strokes fell great oaks. In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. Success has ruined many a man. Energy and persistence conquers all things. Fatigue is the best pillow. God helps them that help themselves. At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgement. Fools need advice most, but wise men only are the better for it.
