James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Poverty persuades a man to do and suffer everything that he may escape from it.  1
  Slow-footed counsel is most sure to gain; / Rashness still brings repentance in her train.  2
  Sparing or spending, be thy wisdom seen / In keeping ever to the golden mean.  3
  The happy think a lifetime a short stage: / One night to the unhappy seems an age.  4
  While others tippled, Sam from drinking shrunk, / Which made the rest think Sam alone was drunk.  5
  Wise is the man prepared for either end, / Who in due measure can both spare and spend.  6
