In prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends
To ask advice is in nine cases out of ten to tout for flattery
Never trust a man who speaks well of everybody
Truth is the object of philosophy, but not always of philosophers
Half our mistakes in life arise from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel.
A wise man thinks what is easy is difficult.
Never claim as a right what you can ask as a favor.
