Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826, American President (3rd))


There is nothing so much seduces reason from vigilance as the thought of passing life with an amiable woman in marriage.


Samuel Johnson (1709-1784, British author)


He is most free from danger, who, even when safe, is on his guard.


Publilius Syrus (85 BC- 43BC, Roman writer)
