Debt is the slavery of the free.
What is left when honor is lost
Hares can gamble over the body of a dead lion.
Speech is a mirror of the soul as a man speaks, so is he.
Never find your delight in another's misfortune.
Learn to see in another's calamity the ills which you should avoid.
Any plan is bad which is incapable of modification.
You should hammer your iron when it is glowing hot.
Fortune is like glassthe brighter the glitter, the more easily broken.
Valor grows by daring, fear by holding back.
Love's wounds can be healed only by the one who inflicts them.
Do not despise the bottom rungs in the ascent to greatness.
If you wish to reach the highest, begin at the lowest.
The happy man is not he who seems thus to others, but who seems thus to himself.
He who lives in solitude may make his own laws.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them
It is bad advice that cannot be altered
He gets through too late who goes too fast
Many receive advice, only the wise profit from it.
Depend not on fortune, but on conduct.
You should make a woman angry if you wish her to love
An angry man is again angry with himself, when he returns to reason
The wise man avoids evil by anticipating it.
The pain of the mind is worse than the pain of the body
It is a bad plan that admits of no modification.
