What is right to be done, cannot be done too soon.
There are people, who the more you do for them, the less they will do for themselves.
None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.
There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.
Vanity working on a weak head, produces every sort of mischief.
Indulge your imagination in every possible flight.

Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.
It is very difficult for the prosperous to be humble.
Know your own happiness.
