Beauty itself doth of itself persuade the eyes of men without orator.

Give them great meals of beef and iron and steel, they will eat like wolves and fight like devils.
Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest,
Lend less than thou owest,
Ride more than thou goest,
Learn more than thou trowest,
Set less than thou throwest;
Leave thy drink and thy whore,
And keep in-a-door,
And thou shall have more
Than two tens to a score.
