For rarely are sons similar to their fathers: most are worse, and a few are better than their fathers.
The force of union conquers all.
Words empty as the wind are best left unsaid.
Be both a speaker of words and a doer of deeds.
The difficulty is not so great to die for a friend, as to find a friend worth dying for.
Long exercised in woes.
Everything flows and nothing stays.
The man who acts the least, upbraids the most.
It is not good to have a rule of many.
Go on with a spirit that fears nothing.
A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.
But curb thou the high spirit in thy breast, for gentle ways are best, and keep aloof from sharp contentions.
True friends appear less moved than counterfeit.
In youth and beauty, wisdom is but rare!
