Page 12 - He who travelleth hath need of wisdom. One may do at home whatsoever one will ; but he who is ignorant of good manners will only draw contempt upon himself, when he comes to sit down with men well instructed.
Page 12 - Whilst we live, let us live well: for be a man ever so rich when he lights his fire, death may perhaps enter his door before it be burnt out.
Page 315 - The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
