He who closes his ears to the views of others shows little confidence in the integrity of his own views
Blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, and though a late, a sure reward succeeds
Grief walks upon the heels of pleasure; married in haste, we repent at leisure.
Music has charms to soothe the savage breast To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.
Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life. Security is an insipid thing, through the overtaking and possessing of a wish discovers the folly of the chase.
Guilt is ever at a loss, and confusion waits upon it.
For blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, And though late, a sure reward succeeds.
Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness, speak cheering words while their ears can hear, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them.
Music hath charm to soothe a savage breast, To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.
A wit should be no more sincere than a woman constant.
Blessings ever wait on virtuous deeds, and though a late, a sure reward succeeds.
