It is very questionable, in my mind, how far we have the right to judge one of another, since there is born within every man the germs of both virtue and vice. The development of one or the other is contingent upon circumstances.
      - [Judgment]

It is what we give up, not what we lay up, that adds to our lasting store.
      - [Sacrifice]

Lay silently the injuries you receive upon the altar of oblivion.
      - [Injury]

Lenity has almost always wisdom and justice on its side.
      - [Lenity]

Liberality should be tempered with judgment, not with profuseness.
      - [Liberality]

Man, being not only a religious, but also a social being, requires for the promotion of his rational happiness religious institutions, which, while they give a proper direction to devotion, at the same time make a wise and profitable improvement of his social feelings.
      - [Religion]

Ministers who threaten death and destruction employ weapons of weakness. Argument and kindness are alone effectual, flavored by the principles of Divine love.
      - [Kindness]

Moderation is the key-note of lasting enjoyment.
      - [Moderation]

Most people who commit a sin count on some personal benefit to be derived therefrom, but profanity has not even this excuse.
      - [Profanity]

Mystery and innocence are not akin.
      - [Mystery]

Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine.
      - [Zeal]

No outward change need trouble him who is inwardly serene.
      - [Conscience]

No reproof or denunciation is so potent as the silent influence of a good example.
      - [Example]

None but the guilty know the withering pains of repentance.
      - [Repentance]

Not the least misfortune in a prominent falsehood is the fact that tradition is apt to repeat it for truth.
      - [Falsehood]

O sin, how you paint your face! how you flatter us poor mortals on to death! You never appear to the sinner in your true character; you make fair promises, but you never fulfil one; your tongue is smoother than oil, but the poison of asps is under your lip!
      - [Sin]

Obedience and resignation are our personal offerings upon the altar of duty.
      - [Resignation]

Obedience sums up our entire duty.
      - [Obedience]

Obedience, as it regards the social relations, the rules of society, and the laws of nature and nature's God, should commence at the cradle and end only at the tomb.
      - [Obedience]

Of all the ingenious mistakes into which erring man has fallen, perhaps none have been so pernicious in their consequences, or have brought so many evils into the world, as the popular opinion that the way of the transgressor is pleasant and easy.
      - [Sin]

Our blessings are the least heeded, because the most common events of life.
      - [Blessings]

      - [Ignorance]

Preaching is of much avail, but practice is far more effective. A godly life is the strongest argument that you can offer to the skeptic.
      - [Example]

Pretension almost always overdoes the original, and hence exposes itself.
      - [Pretension]

Prosperity is very liable to bring pride among the other goods with which it endows an individual; it is then that prosperity costs too dear.
      - [Prosperity]
