Men of few words are the best men.
Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall
Out of this nettle - danger - we pluck this flower - safety
Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
A man cannot make him laugh - but thats no marvel; he drinks no wine.
The people are like water and the ruler a boat. Water can support a boat or overturn it.
Thou seest I have more flesh than another man, and therefore more frailty.
Tempt not a desperate man.
Unthread the rude eye of rebellion, And welcome home again discarded faith.
There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
Make not your thoughts you prisons.
We were not born to sue, but to command.
Words pay no debts.
Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
Had I but serv'd my God with half the zeal I serv'd my king, he would not in mine age Have left me naked to mine enemies.
