One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
Lucky that man whose children make his happiness in life and not his grief, the anguished disappointment of his hopes.
There is something in the pang of change More than the heart can bear, Unhappiness remembering happiness.
Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.
Cleverness is not wisdom.
Down on your knees, and thank heaven, fasting, for a good man’s love.
Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account.
Forgive, son men are men they needs must err.
God hates violence. He has ordained that all men fairly possess their property, not seize it.
Happiness is brief. It will not stay. God batters at its sails.
He is not a lover who does not love forever.
He was a wise man who originated the idea of God.
Life has no blessing like a prudent friend.
Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.
No one can confidently say that he will still be living tomorrow.
Nothing has more strength than dire necessity.
Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.
Silence is true wisdom’s best reply.
