Contents
On the art of making up one's mind
On the disadvantage of not getting what one wants
On the exceptional merit attaching to the things we meant to do
On the preparation and employment of love philtres
On the delights and benefits of slavery
On the care and management of women
On the minding of other people's business
On the time wasted in looking before one leaps
On the nobility of ourselves
On the motherliness of man
On the inadvisability of following advice
On the playing of marches at the funerals of marionettes.
