The living together for three long, rainy days in the country has done more to dispel love than all the perfidies in love that have ever been committed.
      - [Familiarity]

      - [Domesticity]

      - [Self-control]

The measure of civilization in a people is to be found in its just appreciation of the wrongfulness of war.

      - [Passion]

The most enthusiastic man in a cause is rarely chosen as a leader.
      - [Enthusiasm]

The world will tolerate many vices, but not their diminutives.
      - [Vice]

The worst use that can be made of success is to boast of it.
      - [Success]

There is hardly a more common error than that of taking the man who has but one talent for a genius.
      - [Genius]

To hear always, to think always, to learn always, it is thus that we live truly. He who aspires to nothing, who learns nothing, is not worthy of living.
      - [Improvement]

Tolerance is the only real test of civilization.
      - [Toleration]

We are not so easily guided by our most prominent weaknesses as by those of which we are least aware.
      - [Weakness]

We are pleased with one who instantly assents to our opinions, but we love a proselyte.
      - [Argument]

Wisdom is seldom gained without suffering.
      - [Wisdom]

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never thrown away.
      - [Kindness]
