  7. Nobody minds having what is too good for them.
  8. We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.
  9. Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.
  10. The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.
