- To do two things at once is to do neither
- Hard it is to correct the habit already formed
- We are interested in others when they are interested in us
- We all seek to know whether we shall be rich; but no one asks whether he shall be good
- A wise man rules his passions, a fool obeys them
- Human reason grows rich by self-conquest
- He has existed only, not lived, who lacks wisdom in old age
- What greater evil could you wish a miser, than along life?
- The rich miser suffers more from loss than a poor sage
- No one but a knave or fool thinks a good deed thrown away
- To receive a favor is to pawn your freedom
- A favor granted before it is asked is doubly acceptable
- A good reputation, even in darkness, keeps on shining
- We must master our good fortune, or it will master us
- Learn to see in another's calamity the ills which you should avoid
- Trust no man as a friend till you have tried him
- The request of a master is a command
- Consult your conscience, rather than popular opinion
- Consider what you ought to say, and not what you think
- Patience is a remedy for every sorrow
What I got out of it
- Over 1,000 powerful 1-2 line thoughts and axioms. Too many to include and probably will never be able to fully absorb the wisdom contained in this book. One of the few books I feel I will read over and over. Can't recommend highly enough
