There is really nothing left to a genuine idle man, who possesses any considerable degree of vital power, but sin.
      - [Idleness]

To labor rightly and earnestly is to walk in the golden track that leads to God. It is to adopt the regimen of manhood and womanhood. It is to come into sympathy with the great struggle of humanity toward perfection. It is to adopt the fellowship of all the great and good the world has ever known.
      - [Labor]

Wants keep pace with wealth always.
      - [Wealth]

We live in the future. Even the happiness of the present is made up mostly of that delightful discontent which the hope of better things inspires.
      - [Future]

We often wonder that certain men and women are left by God to the commission of sins that shock us. We wonder how, under the temptation of a single hour, they fall from the very heights of virtue and of honor into sin and shame. The fact is that there are no such falls as these, or there are next to none. These men and women are those who have dallied with temptation--have exposed themselves to the influence of it, and have been weakened and corrupted by it.
      - [Temptation]

We work and that is godlike.
      - [Work]

Wealth is the least trustworthy of anchors.
      - [Wealth]

Whatever of true glory has been won by any nation of the earth; whatever great advance his been made by any nation in that which constitutes a high Christian civilization, has been always at the cost of sacrifice; has cost the price marked upon it in God's inventory of national good.
      - [Nation]

Why will you be always sallying out to break lances with other people's wind-mills, when your own is not capable of grinding corn for the horse you ride?
      - [Critics]

Work for immortality if you will: then wait for it.
      - [Immortality]

Work is the means of living, but it is not living.
      - [Work]

Work was made for man, and not man for work. Work is man's servant, both in its results to the worker and the world. Man is not work's servant, save as an almost universal perversion has made him such.
      - [Work]

What is the little one thinking about?
  Very wonderful things, no doubt;
    Unwritten history!
      Unfathomed mystery!
        Yet he laughs and cries, and eats and drinks,
          And chuckles and crows, and nods and winks,
            As if his head were as full of kinks
              And curious riddles as any sphinx!
      - Bitter-Sweet--First Movement (l. 6)
        [Babyhood]

The heart is wiser than the intellect.
      - Kathrina (pt. II, st. 9) [Wisdom]

Nature is the master of talents; genius is the master of nature.
      - Plain Talk on Familiar Subjects--Art and Life
        [Genius]

Music was a thing of the soul--a rose-lipped shell that murmured of the eternal sea--a strange bird singing the songs of another shore.
      - Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects--Art and Life
        [Music]

The temple of art is built of words. Painting and sculpture and music are but the blazon of its windows, borrowing all their significance from the light, and suggestive only of the temple's uses.
      - Plain Talks on Familiar Subjects--Art and Life
        [Art]

God give us men. A time like this demands
  Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands!
    Men whom the lust of office does not kill,
      Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy,
        Men who possess opinions and a will,
          Men who love honor, men who cannot lie.
      - Wanted [Man]
