Seite 178 - And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
Seite 205 - The cat in gloves catches no mice! as Poor Richard says.

Seite 205 - So what signifies wishing and hoping for better Times. We may make these Times better, if we bestir ourselves. Industry need not wish, as Poor Richard says, and he that lives upon Hope will die fasting. There are no Gains without Pains; then Help Hands, for I have no Lands, or if I have, they are smartly taxed.
Seite 88 - Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
