Living well is the best revenge.
One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.
Read as you taste fruit or savor wine or enjoy friendship love or life.
Take all that is given whether wealth love or language nothing comes by mistake and with good digestion all can be turned to health.
In conversation humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.
A man of great memory without learning hath a rock and a spindle and no staff to spin.
