Often a nosegay of wild flowers, which was to us, as village children, a grove of pleasure, has in after years of manhood, and in the town, given us by its old perfume, an indescribable transport back into godlike childhood; and how, like a flower goddess, it has raised us into the first embracing Aurora clouds of our first dim feelings!
      - [Flowers]

Oh, if the loving, closed heart of a good woman should open before a man, how much controlled tenderness, how many veiled sacrifices and dumb virtues, would be seen reposing there!
      - [Heart]

Oh, only a free soul will never grow old!
      - [Freedom]

Old men's lives are lengthened shadows; their evening sun falls coldly on the earth, but the shadows all point to the morning.
      - [Age]

Only actions give life strength; only moderation gives it a charm.
      - [Moderation]

Our course heavenward is something like the plan of the zealous pilgrims to Jerusalem of old, who for every three steps forward took one backward.
      - [Progress]

Our follies and errors are the soiled steps to the Grecian temple our perfection.
      - [Error]

Paradise is always where love dwells.
      - [Love]

Place moral heroes in the field, and heroines follow them as brides, but the opposite does not hold true; no heroine can create a hero through love of her, but she may give birth to one.
      - [Heroes]

Poverty is the only burden which is not lightened by being shared with others.
      - [Poverty]

Poverty is the only load which is the heavier the more loved ones there are to assist in supporting it.
      - [Poverty]

Prayer purifies: it is a self-preached sermon.
      - [Prayer]

Principles, like troops of the line, are undisturbed, and stand fast.
      - [Principles]

Reader, when that which thou lovedst has long vanished from the earth or from thy fancy, then will nevertheless the beloved voice come back, and bring with it all thy old tears, and the disconsolate heart which has shed them.
      - [Voice]

Regularity is unity; unity is godlike.
      - [Punctuality]

Remembrance is the only paradise out of which we cannot be driven away.
      - [Remembrance]

Remembrances last longer than present reality, as I have conserved blossoms many years, but never fruits. Yes, there are tender female souls which intoxicate themselves only among the blossoms of the vineyard of joy, as others do only with the berries of the vinehill.
      - [Remembrance]

See, indeed, that your daughter is thoroughly grounded and experienced in household duties; but take care, through religion and poetry, to keep her heart open to heaven.
      - [Daughters]

Sin and hedgehogs are born without spikes; but how they prick and wound after their birth, we all know.
      - [Remorse]

Since truthfulness, as a conscious virtue and sacrifice, is the blossom, nay, the pollen, of the whole moral growth, it can only grow with its growth, and open when it has reached its height.
      - [Truth]

Sleep, the antechamber of the grave.
      - [Sleep]

So long as the word "God" endures in a language will it direct the eyes of men upwards. It is with the Eternal as with the sun, which, if but its smallest part can shine uneclipsed prolongs the day, and gives its rounded image in the dark chamber.
      - [God]

Sorrow causes more absence and confusion than so-called levity.
      - [Sorrow]

Sorrow seems sent for our instruction, as we darken the cages of birds when we would teach them to sing.
      - [Sorrow]

Spring, the Raphael of the northern earth, stood already out of doors, and covered all apartments of our Vatican with his pictures.
      - [Spring]
