By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
By following the good, you learn to be good.
Cheap things are of no value, valuable things are not cheap.
Conversation enriches the understanding, but solitude is the school of genius.
Courage is your greatest present need.
Creditors have much better memories than debtors.
Deprive a mirror of its silver and even the Czar won't see his face.
Do not clog intellect's sluices with knowledge of questionable uses.
Domestic happiness and faithful friends.
Don't be overly suspicious where it's not warranted.
