A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two different things.
Necessity never made a good bargain.
Our necessities never equal our wants
If a man could have just half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.
Trouble springs from idleness.
God heals, and the Doctor takes the Fees
The best of all medicines is resting and fasting
He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of the most medicines.
Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning.
Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other.
Wars bring scars.
Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.
Our whole life is but a greater and longer childhood.
I saw few die of hunger; of eating, a hundred thousand.
At the working man's house hunger looks in but dares not enter.
