      - [Station]

It is only through the morning gate of the beautiful that you can penetrate into the realm of knowledge. That which we feel here as beauty we shall one day know as truth.
      - [Beauty]

Joy is the mainspring in the whole
  Of endless Nature's calm rotation.
    Joy moves the dazzling wheels that roll
      In the great Time-piece of Creation.
      - [Joy]

Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.
      - [Youth]

Let him that sows the serpent's teeth not hope to reap a joyous harvest. Every crime has, in the moment of its perpetration, its own avenging angel,--dark misgivings at the inmost heart.
      - [Sin]

Let no man measure by a scale of perfection the meager product of reality in this poor world of ours.
      - [Perfection]

Let us not despair too soon, my friend. Men's words are even bolder than their deeds; and many a one who now appears resolute to meet every extremity with eager zeal, will on a sudden find in their breast a heart which he wot not of.
      - [Courage]

Like a dart the present glances,
  Silent stands the past sublime.
      - [Time]

Loitering slow, the future creepeth; arrow-swift, the present sweepeth; and motionless forever stands the past.
      - [Time]

Love can sun the realms of night.
      - [Love]

Man is an imitative creature, and whoever is foremost leads the herd.
      - [Example]

Many a smiling face hides a mourning heart; but grief alone teaches us what we are.
      - [Mourners]

Modest humility is beauty's crown.
      - [Humility]

Most gladly would I give the blood-stained laurel for the first violet which March brings us, the fragrant pledge of the new-fledged year.
      - [Flowers : Spring]

No, no! I do nature injustice. She gave us inventive faculty, and set us naked, and helpless on the shore of this great ocean,--the world; swim those who can, the heavy may go to the bottom.
      - [Nature]

O God, how lovely still is life!
      - [Life]

O love, the beautiful and brief!
      - [Love]

O, the eye's light is a noble gift of heaven! All beings live from light; each fair created thing, the very plants, turn with a joyful transport to the light.
      - [Eyes]

Obedience is the Christian's crown.
      - [Obedience]

Of all the possessions of this life fame is the noblest; when the body has sunk into the dust the great name still lives.
      - [Fame]

Oh, pearl of all things, woman! Adored be the artist who created thee!
      - [Women]

Peace is rarely denied to the peaceful.
      - [Peace]

Revenge is barren of itself; itself is the dreadful food it feeds on; its delight is murder, and its saiety, despair.
      - [Revenge]

Rigor pushed too far is sure to miss its aim, however good, as the bow snaps that is bent too stiffly.
      - [Rigor]

Secrecy is for the happy,--misery, hopeless misery, needs no veil; under a thousand suns it dares act openly.
      - [Secrecy]
