A fishing rod is a stick with a hook at one end and a fool at the other.
Honey is sweet but bees sting.
I do not distinguish by the eye, but by the mind, which is the proper judge.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser than he was yesterday.
To flee vice is the beginning of virtue, and to have got rid of folly is the beginning of wisdom.
He that seeks trouble never misses.
