Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.
Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
Expectation is the root of all heartache.
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
If music be the food of love, play on.
If we are true to ourselves we cannot be false to anyoneplay on.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
Lord, what fools these mortals be!
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
No legacy is so rich as honesty.
Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
Small cheer and great welcome make a merry feast.
Sweet are the uses of adversity which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head
