A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.
Never have a companion that casts you in the shade.
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.
Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.
A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.
Let the first impulse pass, wait for the second.
Friendship multiplies the good of life and divides the evil.
When desire dies, fear is born.
Evil report carries further than any applause.
Always leave something to wish for; otherwise you will be miserable from your very happiness.
