There is no fortune so good that you can find nothing in it to complain of.
The wise man avoids evil by anticipating it.
Debt is the slavery of the free.
Only the bold get to the top.
Many receive advice, only the wise profit by it.
What is done hastily cannot be done prudently.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
Nothing can be done at once hastily and prudently.
God looks with favor at pure, not full, hands.
He hurts the good who spares the bad.
