The Lord grant we may all be tillers of the soil.
Whatever you may say, the body depends on the soul.
Countless as the sands of the sea are human passions.
It is no use to blame the looking glass if your face is awry.
You can't imagine how stupid the whole world has grown nowadays.
There are certain words which are nearer and dearer to a man than any others.
It's the most righteous, which of course is not the same thing as the most profitable.
Always think of what is useful and not what is beautiful. Beauty will come of its own accord.
Let me warn you, if you start chasing after views, you'll be left without bread and without views.
We ought to thank God for that. Yes, the man who tills the land is more worthy of respect than any.
