Mythology is not religion. It may rather be regarded as the ancient substitute, the poetical counterpart, for dogmatic theology.
      - [Mythology]

Nature is mighty. Art is mighty. Artifice is weak. For nature is the work of a mightier power than man. Art is the work of man under the guidance and inspiration of a mightier power. Artifice is the work of mere man, in the imbecility of his mimic understanding.
      - [Artifice]

Never put much confidence in such as put no confidence in others. A man prone to suspect evil is mostly looking in his neighbor for what he sees in himself. As to the pure all things are pure, even so to the impure all things are impure.
      - [Confidence]

None but a fool is always right.
      - [Fools]

Nothing good bursts forth all at once. The lightning may dart out of a black cloud; but the day sends his bright heralds before him, to prepare the world for his coming.
      - [Goodness]

Nothing is farther than earth from heaven; nothing is nearer than heaven to earth.
      - [Heaven]

Only when the voice of duty is silent, or when it has already spoken, may we allowably think of the consequences of a particular action.
      - [Duty]

Since the generality of persons act from impulse, much more than from principle, men are neither so good nor so bad as we are apt to think them.
      - [Impulse]

Some men so dislike the dust kicked up by the generation they belong to, that, being unable to pass, they lag behind it.
      - [Progress]

Some people carry their hearts in their heads; very many carry their heads in their hearts. The difficulty is to keep them apart, yet both actively working together.
      - [Head]

Some persons take reproof good-humoredly enough, unless you are so unlucky as to hit a sore place. Then they wince and writhe, and start up and knock you down for your impertinence, or wish you good morning.
      - [Reproof]

Sudden resolutions, like the sudden rise of the mercury in the barometer, indicate little else than the changeableness of the weather.
      - [Resolution]

The business of philosophy is to circumnavigate human nature.
      - [Philosophy]

The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it.
      - [Good Friday]

The difference between those whom the world esteems as good and those whom it condemns as bad, is in many cases little else than that the former have been better sheltered from temptation.
      - [Temptation]

The grand difficulty is to feel the reality of both worlds, so as to give each its due place in our thoughts and feelings, to keep our mind's eye and our heart's eye ever fixed on the land of promise, without looking away from the road along which we are to travel toward it.
      - [Future]

The intellect of the wise is like glass; it admits the light of heaven and reflects it.
      - [Intellect]

The power of faith will often shine forth the most when the character is naturally weak.
      - [Faith]

The praises of others may be of use in teaching us, not what we are, but what we ought to be.
      - [Praise]

The question is not whether a doctrine is beautiful, but whether it is true. When we want to go to a place, we don't ask whether the road leads through a pretty country, but whether it is the right road, the road pointed out by authority, the turnpike-road.
      - [Doctrine]

The ultimate tendency of civilization is towards barbarism.
      - [Civilization]

The virtue of paganism was strength; the virtue of Christianity is obedience.
      - [Obedience]

There is a glare about worldly success which is very apt to dazzle men's eyes.
      - [Prosperity : Success]

There is as much difference between good poetry and fine verses, as between the smell of a flower-garden and of a perfumer's shop.
      - [Poetry]

There is no being eloquent for atheism. In that exhausted receiver the mind cannot use its wings,--the clearest proof that it is out of its element.
      - [Atheism]
