The most stormy ebullitions of passion, from blasphemy to murder, are less terrific than one single act of cool villainy; a still rabies is more dangerous than the paroxysms of a fever. Fear the boisterous savage of passion less than the sedately grinning villain.

      - [Heroes]

The true friend of truth and good loves them under all forms, but he loves them most under the most simple form.
      - [Simplicity]

The worst of all knaves are those who can mimic their former honesty.
      - [Knavery]

The worst of faces still is human.
      - [Face]

There are but three classes of men, the retrograde, the stationary, and the progressive.
      - [Man]

There are many kinds of smiles, each having a distinct character. Some announce goodness and sweetness, others betray sarcasm, bitterness, and pride; some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness, others brighten by their spiritual vivacity.
