      - [Sympathy]

Unless we find repose within ourselves, it is vain to seek it elsewhere.
      - [Contentment]

We must not only read the Scriptures, but we must make their rules of life our own.
      - [Scripture]

Weary the path that does not challenge reason. Doubt is an incentive to truth, and patient inquiry leadeth the way.
      - [Doubt]

Wisdom consists not no much in seeing as in foreseeing.
      - [Wisdom]

With regard to manner, be careful to speak in a soft, tender, kind and loving way. Even when you have occasion to rebuke, be careful to do it with manifest kindness. The effect will be incalculably better.
      - [Gentleness]

You cannot judge by outward appearances; the soul is only transparent to its Maker.
