The first step is as good as half over.
You never know your luck.
Sow nothing, reap nothing.
The wealth of the mind is the only wealth.
You can’t judge a tree by its bark.
Clothes do not make the man.
To be both a speaker of words and a doer of deeds.
Variety is the spice of life.
Bad times make a good man.
There is no royal road to learning.
Doubt is the key to knowledge.
Sharp tools make good work.
Wasting time is robbing oneself.
Nurture passes nature.
There is no garden without its weeds.
A man is only as good as what he loves.
Wealth is the test of a man’s character.
The best hearts are always the bravest.
Courtesy is the inseparable companion of virtue.
Plain living and high thinking.
Good is good, but better carries it.
Honesty is the best policy.
Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Politeness costs nothing and gains everything.
A man can’t ride your back unless it is bent.
Conceit is the quicksand of success.
He that makes a good war makes a good peace.
There is no disputing about tastes.
It is easy to be wise after the event.
He that makes a thing too fine, breaks it.
When all else is lost the future still remains.
The world is his who enjoys it.
A little labor, much health.
Laugh and grow fat.
Work won’t kill but worry will.
He is rich that has few wants.
Every man at forty is a fool or a physician.
