Custom reconciles us to everything
A good style fits like a good costume
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come
Take the course opposite to custom and you will almost always do well
When thou art at Rome, do as they do at Rome
Nothing is more powerful than custom or habit
Forgive him, for he believes that the customs of his tribe are the laws of nature!

Men commonly think according to their inclinations, speak according to their learning and imbibed opinions, but generally act according to custom
Custom is the principle magistrate of man's life
