    A son could bear with great complacency, the death of his father,
    while the loss of his inheritance might drive him to despair.
    [Lat., Gli huomini dimenticano piu teste la morte del padre, che
    la perdita del patrimonie.]

What you lend is lost; when you ask for it back, you may find a
friend made an enemy read more

What you lend is lost; when you ask for it back, you may find a
friend made an enemy by your kindness. If you begin to press him
further, you have the choice of two things--either to lose your
loan or lose your friend.
[Lat., Si quis mutuum quid dederit, sit pro proprio perditum;
Cum repetas, inimicum amicum beneficio invenis tuo.
Si mage exigere cupias, duarum rerum exoritur optio;
Vel illud, quod credideris perdas, vel illum amicum, amiseris.]

That whatsoever thing is lost,
We seek it, ere read more

That whatsoever thing is lost,
We seek it, ere it comes to light,
In every cranny but the right.

That loss is common would not make
My own less bitter, rather more:
Too common! Never morning read more

That loss is common would not make
My own less bitter, rather more:
Too common! Never morning wore
To evening, but some heart did break.
