Take from men ambition and vanity and you will have neither heroes nor patriots.
      - [Motive]

Teach the art of living well.
      - [Teaching]

That comes too late that comes for the asking.
      - [Charity]

That is never too often repeated which is never sufficiently learnt.
      - [Proverbs]

That which has been endured with difficulty is remedied with delight.
      - [Proverbs]

That which is given with pride and ostentation is rather an ambition than a bounty.
      - [Gifts]

That which we are not permitted to have we delight in; that which we can have is disregarded.
      - [Proverbs]

The anger of those in authority is always weighty.
      - [Proverbs]

The conviction of having committed a fault is its first and greatest punishment.
      - [Proverbs]

The expression of truth is simplicity.
      - [Truth]

The fortune of war is always doubtful.
      - [War]

The friends of the unfortunate live a long way off.
      - [Proverbs]

The great blessings of mankind are within us, and within our reach, but we shut our eyes, and, like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it.
      - [Happiness]

The greatest chastisement that a man may receive who hath outraged another, is to have done the outrage; and there is no man who is so rudely punished as he that is subject to the whip of his own repentance.
      - [Remorse]

The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depends upon the future. We let go the present, which we have in our power, and look forward to that which depends upon chance--and so relinquish a certainty for an uncertainty.
      - [Time]

The greatest man is he who chooses right with the most invincible resolution.
      - [Greatness]

The greatest power of ruling consists in the exercise of self-control.
      - [Proverbs]

The law of the pleasure in having done anything for another is, that the one almost immediately forgets having given, and the other remembers eternally having received.
      - [Gratitude]

The man who can be compelled knows not how to die.
      - [Stubbornness]

The man who has learned to triumph over sorrow wears his miseries as though they were sacred fillets upon his brow; and nothing is so entirely admirable as a man bravely wretched.
      - [Grief]

The manner of saying or of doing anything goes a great way in the value of the thing itself. It was well said of him that called a good office that was done harshly, and with an ill-will, a stony piece of bread; it is necessary for him that is hungry to receive it, but it almost chokes a man in the going down.
      - [Manners]

The mind does not easily unlearn what it has been long in learning.
      - [Proverbs]

The mind is never right but when it is at peace within itself; the soul is in heaven even while it is in the flesh, if it be purged of its natural corruptions, and taken up with divine thoughts, and contemplations.
      - [Soul]

The mind is the proper judge of the man.
      - [Mind]

The miserable are sacred.
      - [Misery]
