I am human and let nothing human be alien to me.
I hold this as a rule of life: too much of anything is bad.
Many a time from a bad beginning great friendships have sprung up.
Moderation in all things.
Of my friends I am the only one left.
Perhaps believing in good design is like believing in God, it makes you an optimist.
Riches get their value from the mind of the possessor; they are blessings to those who know how to use them, and curses to those who do not.
She ne'er was really charming till she died.
So many men, so many opinions.
The anger of lovers renews their love.
They are so knowing, that they know nothing.
This I consider to be a valuable principle in life: Do no thing in excess.
To touch a sore is to renew one's grief.
Too much liberty corrupts us all.
What a grand thing it is to be clever and have common sense.
What harsh judges fathers are to all young men!
Where there's life, there's hope.
You can take a chance with any man who pays his bills on time.
For nowaday deference gets you friends, honesty gets you hated.
The quarrels of lovers are the renewal of love.
There is nothing so easy but that it becomes difficult when you do it with reluctance.
How often events, by chance, and unexpectedly, came to pass, which you had not dared even to hope for!
Nothing is said that has not been said before.
Nowadays those are rewarded who make right appear wrong.
I take it to be a principle rule of life, not to be too much addicted to any one thing.
