There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit; and there is no true beauty without the signatures of these graces in the very countenance.
Children are poor men's riches.
Diseases are the tax on pleasures.
Many without punishment, none without sin.
Never meet trouble half-way.
Industry is fortunes right hand, and frugality its left.
