Success tempts many to their ruin.


The bow kept taut will quickly break, kept loosely strung, it will serve you when you need it.


The only problem with seeing too much is that it makes you insane.


A learned man has always riches in himself.


Witticisms please as long as we keep them within boundaries, but pushed to excess they cause offense.


Whoever is detected in a shameful fraud is ever after not believed even if they speak the truth.


In outward show so splendid and so vain; 'tis but a gilded block without a brain.


The mind ought sometimes to be diverted that it may return to better thinking.


Gentleness is the antidote for cruelty.


Strangers he gulls, but friends make fun of him.


An alliance with a powerful person is never safe.


In a change of masters the poor change nothing except their master's name.


Things are not always as they seem; the first appearance deceives many.


That only is a disgrace to a man which he has deserved to suffer.


The intelligence of few perceives what has been carefully hidden in the recesses of the mind.


It is the part of a fool to give advice to others and not himself to be on his guard.


Submit to the present evil, lest a greater one befall you.


I would rather not be a king than to forfeit my liberty.
