Author Quotes

What you leave at your death, let it be without controversy, else the lawyers will be your heirs.

Example prevails more than precept.

Leave your bed upon the first desertion of sleep it being ill for the eyes to read lying, and worse for the mind to be idle; since the head during that laziness is commonly a cage for unclean thoughts.

Let your wit rather serve you for a buckler to defend yourself, by a handsome reply, than the sword to wound others, though with ever so facetious reproach; remembering that a word cuts deeper than a sharper weapon and the wound it makes is longer curing.

What you leave at your death let it be without controversy, else the lawyers will be your heirs.
