The ambiguous livery worn alike by modesty and shame.
      - [Blushes]

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.
      - [Charity]

The glow of the angel in woman.
      - [Blushes]

The scapegoat which we make responsible for all our crimes and follies; a necessity which we set down for invincible, when we have no wish to strive against it.
      - [Destiny]

The silent upbraiding of the eye is the very poetry of reproach; it speaks at once to the imagination.
      - [Reproach]

What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars the flowers of heaven?
      - [Flowers]

Young Crime's finishing-school.
      - [Prison]
