2.   Teach me to feel another's woe, to hide the fault I see, that mercy I to others show, that mercy show to me.                                                                                                       ‘The Universal Prayer' (1738)

3.   Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.                                                            An Essay on Criticism l. 625 (1711)

4.   It often happens that those are the best people whose characters have been most injured by slanderers: as we usually find that to be the sweetest fruit which the birds have been picking at.

5.   Act well your part, there all the honour lies.

6.   Strength of mind is exercise, not rest.                                                                                  Owen Ruffhead (1769)

7.   A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring.               
An Essay on Criticism l. 215 (1711)

8.   To be angry is to revenge the faults of others on ourselves.

9.   Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon.
