Beware of the young doctor and the old barber.
Many men die at twenty-five and aren't buried until they are seventy-five.

If you would be wealthy, think of saving as well as getting.
If Jack's in love, he's no judge of Jill's beauty.
Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterwards.
Energy and persistence conquer all thing.
No nation was ever ruined by trade.
Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
The doors of wisdom are never shut. Well done is better than well said.
