Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
But the shortest works are always the best.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred.
It is impossible to please all the world and one’s father.
Help thyself and Heaven will help thee.
Everyone believes very easily whatever they fear or desire.
By the work one knows the workman.
People must help one another; it is nature’s law.
One often has need of one, inferior to himself.
