      - [Oppression]

Unkind language is sure to produce the fruits of unkindness--that is, suffering in the bosom of others.
      - [Unkindness]

We may scatter the seeds of courtesy and kindness around us at so little expense. Some of them will inevitably fall on good ground, and grow up into benevolence in the minds of others: and all of them will bear fruit of happiness in the bosom whence they spring.
      - [Kindness]

O Logic: born gatekeeper to the Temple of Science, victim of capricious destiny: doomed hitherto to be the drudge of pedants: come to the aid of thy master, Legislation.
      - "Works" by J. Browning (ed.) [Logic]

Priestly was the first (unless it was Becarria) who taught my lips to pronounce this sacred truth--that the greatest happiness of the greatest number is the foundation of morals and legislation.
      - vol. X, p. 142 [Happiness]

Three acres and a cow.
      - Works (vol. III, p. 448) [Agriculture]
