#Error

Truth will sooner come out of error than from confusion.

#Death

Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other.

#Communication

Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man.

#Books

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

#Body

A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.

#Belief

Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true.

#Age and ageing

Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

#Prosperity

Prosperity doth best discover vice, but adversity doth best discover virtue.

#Adversity

He knows not his own strength that hath not met adversity.

#Ability

Natural abilities are like natural plants that need pruning by study.
