Care
 
Care is like a husbandman who doth guard our treasures:
And the while, all ways he can, spoils our harmless pleasures.
Loving hearts and laughing brows, most he seeks to plunder,
And each furrow that he ploughs turns the roses under.
            —Alice Cary

  Second-hand cares, like second-hand clothes, come easily off and on.
            —Charles Dickens
  2
  As much care as pilots of ships avoid the rocks of the sea.
            —François Rabelais

  As rust eats iron, so care eats the heart.
            —Achilli Richard
