Mistrust the person who finds everything good, and the person who finds everything evil, and mistrust even more the person who is indifferent to everything.
Say not you know another entirely till you have divided an inheritance with him.
Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
He who seldom speaks, and with one calm well-timed word can strike dumb the loquacious, is a genius or a hero.
Trust him not with your secrets, who, when left alone in your room, turns over your papers.
He who purposely cheats his friend, would cheat his God
Who has a daring eye tell downright truths and downright lies.
Vanity and rudeness are seldom seen together.
All affectation is the vain and ridiculous attempt of poverty to appear rich
Who makes quick use of the moment is a genius of prudence.
