And he that strives to touch the stars, Oft stumbles at a straw.
Who will not suffer labor in this world, let him not be born.
When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
Either I will find away or I will make one
Sir Philip Sidney
Brevity is the soul of wit.
Every silver lining has a cloud.
Not at his picture, but his book.
There is a garden in her face
Where roses and white lilies blow;
A heavenly paradise is that place,
Wherein all pleasant fruits do grow;
There cherries grow that none may buy,
Till Cherry-Ripe themselves do cry.
He that fights and runs away will live to fight another day.
Old English Rhyme
See, I have taken England with both my hands.
King of England William I
If the heart be right, it matters not which way the head lies.
Sir Walter Raleigh
Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it's twice as onerous a duty.
Promise is most given when the least is said.
The faults of great authors are generally excellences carried to an excess.
