- A good conscience is a continual Christmas.
- A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things. There will be sleeping enough in the grave.
- A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.
- Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
- All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.
- An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
- Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.
- Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.
- By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
- Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.
- Do not squander time for that is the stuff life is made of.
- Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
- He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
- I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.
- Never confuse motion with action.
- Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.
- Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
- When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.
