| The masters eye makes the horse fat.|
From the Latin.
| It is the enemy who keep the sentinel watchful.|
| Vigilance is not only the price of liberty, but of success of any sort.|
| He is most free from danger, who, even when safe, is on his guard.|
| There is a significant Latin proverb, to wit, Who will guard the guards?|
H. W. Shaw.
| A prudent person, having to do with a designing one, will always distrust most when appearances are fairest.|
| ||Chance will not do the work. Chance sends the breeze;|
|But if the pilot slumber at the helm,|
|The very wind that wafts us towrds the port|
|May dash us on the shoals. The steersmans part|
|Is vigilance, or blow it rough or smooth.|
