Sometimes the best gain is to lose.
If a donkey bray at you, don’t bray at him.
A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread.
Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.
Better never begin than never make an end.
Night is the mother of counsels.
The shortest answer is doing.
You must lose a fly to catch a trout.
It is part of a poor spirit to undervalue himself and blush.
There would be no great men if there were no little ones.
