Speak not of my debts unless you mean to pay them.
Be thrifty, but not covetous.
The eyes have one language everywhere.
In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.
No men who really think deeply about women retain a high opinion of them; men either despise women or they have never thought seriously about them.
Hell is full of good meanings and wishings.
He that will learn to pray, let him go to sea.
Never was a miser a brave soul.
Be calm in arguing; for fierceness makes error a fault, and truth discourtesy.
He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass if he would ever reach heaven; for everyone has need to be forgiven.
