Don’t value a man for the quality he is of, but for the qualities he possesses.
Early to bed and early to rise make a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Ere you consult your fancy, consult your purse.
Everything one has a right to do is not best to be done.
Gifts much expected are paid, not given.
He that cannot obey, cannot command.
He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
He that lieth down with dogs, shall rise up with fleas.
He that lives upon hope shall die fasting.
If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some.
Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.
Lost time is never found again.
Neglect kills injuries, revenge increases them.
Old boys have their playthings as well as young ones; the difference is only in the price.
Remember that time is money.
The absent are never without fault, nor the present without excuse.
The first mistake in the public business is going into it.
The noblest question in the world is, “What good may I do in it?”
The rotten apple spoils his companion.
The use of money is all the advantage there is in having money.
