Judge of thine improvement, not by what thou speakest or writest, but by the firmness of thy mind, and the government of thy passions and affections.
A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.
Bad excuses are worse than none.
Good clothes open all doors.
He that has one eye is a prince among those that have none.
With foxes we must play the fox.
He is poor indeed that can promise nothing.
