It is always well to accept your own shortcomings with candor but to regard those of your friends with polite incredulity.

Avarice is generally the last passion of those lives of which the first part has been squandered in pleasure, and the second devoted to ambition. He that sinks under the fatigue of getting wealth, lulls his age with the milder business of saving it.
