  Fooled thou must be, though wisest of the wise; / Then be the fool of virtue, not of vice.  2
  It takes ten pounds of common-sense to carry one pound of learning.  3
  Of four things every man has more than he knows—of sins, and debts, and years, and foes.  4
  ’Tis the same to him who wears a shoe as if the whole earth were thatched with leather.  5
