There is the kiss of welcome and of parting; the long, lingering, loving, present one; the stolen, or the mutual one; the kiss of love, of joy, and of sorrow; the seal of promise, and the receipt of fulfilment. Is it strange, therefore, that a woman is invincible, whose armory consists of kisses, smiles, and tears?
      - [Kisses]

To carry care to bed is to sleep with a pack on your back.
      - [Care]

Vanity is not half a bad principle, if it will but stick to legitimate business.
      - [Vanity]

What a sight there is in that "smile!" it changes like a chameleon. There is a vacant smile, a cold smile, a smile of hate, a satiric smile, an affected smile; but, above all, a smile of love.
      - [Smiles]

When a man is wrong and won't admit it, he always gets angry.
      - [Anger]

Wherever there is authority, there is a natural inclination to disobedience.
      - [Disobedience]

Wise men, like wine, are best when old; pretty women, like bread, are best when young.
      - [Youth]

Wishes, like castles in the air, are inexpensive and not taxable.
      - [Wishes]

Women forgive injuries, but never forget slights.
      - [Women]

Women will sometimes confess their sins, but I never knew one to confess her faults.
      - [Faults]

There is nothing like fun, is there? I haven't any myself, but I
  do like it in others. O, we need it. We need all the counterweights we can muster to balance the sad relations of life. God has made many sunny spots in the heart; why should we exclude the light from them?
      - Nature and Human Nature [Fun : Mirth]

Circumstances alter cases.
      - The Old Judge (ch. XV)
        [Circumstance : Proverbs]
