No man is happy but by comparison.
There is no joy without alloy.
Progress is the activity of today and the assurance of tomorrow.
Good order is the foundation of all things.
He that plants trees loves others besides himself.
The world is but a little place, after all.
Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.
Where there is unity, there is victory.
United we stand, divided we fall.
Love is the mother of love.
Love lives in cottages as well as in courts.
True love never grows old.
Hope is a lover's staff.
It is better to give than to take.
Example is better than precept.
Diligence is the mother of success.
From saving comes having.
Cut your coat according to your cloth.
Human pride is human weakness.
Man proposes, God disposes.
No one but the wearer knows where the shoe pinches.
Vainglory blossoms but never bears.
Anger is the wind which blows out the lamp of the mind.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Sometimes the best gain is to lose.
Don't trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.
You cannot step twice into the same river.
In for a penny, in for a pound.
A brave man risks his life, but not his conscience.
It is not the fine coat that makes the gentleman.
Pride hurts, modesty benefits.
