If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainty.
Only man is not content to leave things as they are but must always be changing them, and when he has done so, is seldom satisfied at the result.
Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
He that wants money, means, and content, is without three good friends.
If you have an olive, you want an olive tree. You want a little more. You want the whole tree.
