Goody Two-Shoes.

Induſtry is Fortune's right Hand, and Frugality her left.
Make much of Three-pence, or you ne'er will be worth a Groat.


A Lie ſtands upon one Leg, but Truth upon two.
When a Man talks much, believe but half what he ſays.
Fair Words butter no Parſnips.
Bad Company poiſons the Mind.
A covetous Man is never ſatisfied.
Abundance, like Want, ruins many
Contentment is the beſt Fortune.
A contented Mind is a continual Feaſt.

A Lesson in Religion.

Love God, for he is good.
Fear God, for he is juſt.
