Anger is a brief lunacy.
He who has made it a practice to lie and deceive his father, will be the most daring in deceiving others.
He gains everyone's approval who mixes the pleasant with the useful.
Life gives nothing to man without labor.
I hate the irreverent rabble and keep them far from me.
Be ever on your guard what you say of anybody and to whom.
You who write, choose a subject suited to your abilities and think long and hard on what your powers are equal to and what they are unable to perform.
Anger is a momentary madness, so control your passion or it will control you.
When things are steep, remember to stay level-headed.
Begin, be bold and venture to be wise.
You must avoid sloth, that wicked siren.
Why harass with eternal purposes a mind to weak to grasp them?
