Literature is the fruit of thinking souls.
      - [Literature]

Little dew-drops of celestial melody.
      - [Songs]

Living movement.
      - [Progress]

Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure that there is one rascal less in the world.
      - [Man]

Man is a tool-using animal.
      - [Tools]

Man is properly speaking, based upon hope, he has no other possession but hope; this world of his is emphatically the place of hope.
      - [Hope]

Man, it is not thy works, which are mortal, infinitely little, and the greatest no greater than the least, but only the spirit thou workest in, that can have worth or continuance.
      - [Motive]

Manhood begins when we have, in a way, made truce with necessity; begins, at all events, when we have surrendered to necessity, as the most part only do; but begins joyfully and hopefully only when we have reconciled ourselves to necessity, and thus, in reality, triumphed over it, and felt that in necessity we are free.
      - [Necessity]

Manners are stronger than laws.
      - [Manners]

Men do less than they ought, unless they do all that they can.
      - [Deeds]

Men's hearts ought not to be set against one another, but set with one another, and all against evil only.
      - [Unity]

Midas longed for gold. He got gold, so that whatever he touched became gold; and he, with his long ears, was little the better for it.
      - [Gold]

Money will buy money's worth; but the thing men call fame, what is it?
      - [Fame]

Money, in truth, can do much, but it cannot do all. We must know the province of it, and confine it there, and even spurn it back when it wishes to get farther.
      - [Money]

Music is a kind of inarticulate unfathomable speech, which leads us to the edge of the infinite, and lets us for moments gaze into that.
      - [Music]

Nature, after all, is still the grand agent in making poets.
      - [Poets]

Nine-tenths of the miseries and vices of mankind proceed from idleness.
      - [Idleness]

No country can find eternal peace and comfort where the vote of Judas Iscariot is as good as the vote of the Saviour of mankind.
      - [Votes]

No man is born without ambitious worldly desires.
      - [Ambition]

No man lives without jostling and being jostled; in all ways he has to elbow himself through the world, giving and receiving offence.
      - [Life]

No man who has once heartily and wholly laughed can be altogether irreclaimably bad.
      - [Laughter]

No violent extreme endures.
      - [Extremes]

Not one false man but doth uncountable evil.
      - [Evil]

Nothing that was worthy in the past departs; no truth or goodness realized by man ever does or can die; but all is still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless changes.
      - [Past]

O poor mortals, how ye make this earth bitter for each other.
      - [Cruelty]
