He who is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
He who laughs last probably doesn't understand the joke.
Here comes the orator, with his flood of words and his drop of reason.
His heart was yours from the first moment that you met.
His life was formal; his actions seemed ruled with a ruler.

How many "coming men" has one known! Where on earth do they all go to?
How sharper than a hound's tooth it is to have a thankless serpent.
How you look depends on where you go.
I despise the pleasure of pleasing people whom I despise.
