THOMAS SHERLOCK
English bishop
(1678 - 1761)

Most men take least notice of what is plain, as if that was of no use; but puzzle their thoughts to be themselves is those vast depths and abysses which no human understanding can fathom.
      - [Mystery]

Nothing is truly infamous, but what is wicked; and therefore shame can never disturb an innocent and virtuous mind.
      - [Shame]

Sins may be forgiven through repentance, but no act of wit will ever justify them.
      - [Repentance]

There is no dispute managed without passion, and yet there is scarce a dispute worth a passion.
      - [Controversy]

There is not such a mighty difference as some men imagine between the poor and the rich; in pomp, show, and opinion there is a great deal, but little as to the pleasures and satisfactions of life: they enjoy the same earth and air and heavens; hunger and thirst make the poor man's meat and drink as pleasant and relishing as all the varieties which cover the rich man's table; and the labor of a poor man is more healthful, and many times more pleasant, too, than the ease and softness of the rich.
      - [Poverty]

Those men who destroy a healthful constitution of body by intemperance as manifestly kill themselves as those who hang or poison or drown themselves.
      - [Suicide]

To be ambitious of true honor, of the true glory and perfection of our natures, is the very principle and incentive of virtue; but to be ambitious of titles, of place, of ceremonial respects and civil pageantry, is as vain and little as the things are which we court.
      - [Honor]
