- Busy filleth empty.
- No man is wearied sorer than he who is weary of himself.
- A babe without a wail is like a dog without a tail.
- There is a difference between one who rideth his
tongue and one whose tongue rideth him.
- Each man wrappeth his thought within his own egotry
and calleth the brat a new name.
- Give me not wisdom enough to understand the universe, but
folly enough to tolerate it.
- Humility is not a clout for the beggar, but a kingly robe for the mighty.
- The legs of wisdom are still bent from crawling.
- You may not mend a split head by being sorry.
- Jealousy is the blade that slays love.
- Let a wise man set to lovering and the apple of his wisdom rots.
- No man whose belly is soured thinketh sweet.
- He who hath faith hath the pence to buy eternity.
- When a fool becomes wise he falls silent.
