QUACKS are stubborn things.
It's a wise girl who knows her own mind.
Society's the mother of convention.
Home was not built in a day.
Modesty is the best policy.
Circumstances alter faces.
A rolling gait gathers remorse.
All's not old that titters.
Let us eat, drink and be married, for to-morrow we dye.
Charity uncovers a multitude of sins.

Carolyn Wells
