When at a loss how to go on, cough.
Milk the cow, but do not pull off the udder.
A truth spoken before its time is dangerous.
Act quickly, think slowly.
Think with the wise, but talk with the vulgar.
A beard signifies lice, not brains.
The beginning is the half of every action.
Who ceases to be a friend never was one.
Gray hair is a sign of age, not of wisdom.
First secure an independent income, then practice virtue.
Kindness begets kindness.
A heart that loves is always young.
