I would prefer as friend a good man ignorant than one more clever who is evil too.
Slight not what’s near through aiming at what’s far.
‘Twas but my tongue, ’twas not my soul that swore.
Life has no blessing like a prudent friend.
Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.
Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.
New faces have more authority than accustomed ones.
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
Ten soldiers wisely led will beat a hundred without a head.
When a man’s stomach is full it makes no difference whether he is rich or poor.
