Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good servants, but bad masters.
It is thrifty to prepare today for the wants of tomorrow.
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
People often grudge others what they cannot enjoy themselves.
Beware that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.
Self-conceit may lead to self destruction.
The gods help them that help themselves.
United we stand, divided we fall.
We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance.
Please all, and you will please none.
If you allow men to use you for your own purposes, they will use you for theirs.
