A Pair of good Ears will drink dry an hundred Tongues.

Benjamin Franklin

Some of our sparks to London town do go,
Fashions to see, and learn the world to know ;
Who at return have nought but these to show :
New wig above, and new disease below.

Thus the jack-ass, traveller once would be,
And roam’d abroad new fashions for to see ;
But home returned, fashions he had none,
Only his mane and tail were larger grown.

Benjamin Franklin

All things are cheap to the saving, dear to the wasteful.
