Never was a miser a brave soul.
Be calm in arguing; for fierceness makes error a fault, and truth discourtesy.

Throw away thy rod, throw away thy wrath; O my God, take the gentle path.

Dare to be true. Nothing can need a lie: a fault which needs it most, grows two thereby.
War makes thieves and peace hangs them.
One sword keeps another in the sheath.
