If we look closely at this earth, where God seems so utterly forgotten, we shall find that it is He, after all, who commands the most fidelity and the most love.
      - [God]

In a healthy state of the organism all wounds have a tendency to heal.
      - [Consolation]

In the opinion of the world marriage ends all, as it does in a comedy. The truth is precisely the reverse; it begins all.
      - [Friendship]

In this world of change, nought which comes stays, and nought which goes is lost.
      - [Change]

In youth we feel richer for every new illusion; in maturer years, for every one we lose.
      - [Illusion]

In youth, grief comes with a rush and overflow, but it dries up, too, like the torrent. In the winter of life it remains a miserable pool, resisting all evaporation.
      - [Grief]

Indifferent souls never part. Impassioned souls part, and return to one another, because they can do no better.
      - [Indifference]

Indulgence is lovely in the sinless; toleration, adorable in the pious and believing heart.
      - [Indulgence]

It is a little stream, which flows softly, but freshens everything along its course.
      - [Moderation]

It is the enemy who keep the sentinel watchful.
      - [Vigilance]

It must be conceded that, after affection, habit has its peculiar value. It is a little stream which flows softly, but freshens everything along its course.
      - [Habit]

It would seem that by our sorrows only we are called to a knowledge of the Infinite. Are we happy? The limits of life constrain us on all sides.
      - [Sorrow]

Let our lives be pure as snow-fields, where our footsteps leave a mark, but not a stain.
      - [Innocence]

Let us shun everything, which might tend to efface the primitive lineaments of our individuality. Let us reflect that each one of us is a thought of God.
      - [Individuality]

Liberty must be a mighty thing; for by it God punishes and rewards nations.
      - [Liberty]

Life grows darker as we go on, till only one pure light is left shining on it; and that is faith. Old age, like solitude and sorrow, has its revelations.
      - [Age : Faith]

Loving souls are like paupers. They live on what is given them.
      - [Affection]

Men are always invoking justice; yet it is justice which should make them tremble.
      - [Justice]

Men do not go out to meet misfortune as we do. They learn it; and we--we divine it.
      - [Misfortune]

My sole defense against the natural horror which death inspires is to love beyond it.
      - [Death]

Old age is not one of the beauties of creation, but it is one of its harmonies. The law of contrasts is one of the laws of beauty. Under the conditions of our climate, shadow gives light its worth; sternness enhances mildness; solemnity, splendor. Varying proportions of size support and subserve one another.
      - [Age]

Only those faults which we encounter in ourselves are insufferable to us in others.
      - [Faults]

Our faults afflict us more than our good deeds console. Pain is ever uppermost in the conscience as in the heart.
      - [Conscience]

Our vanity is the constant enemy of our dignity.
      - [Vanity]

Piety softens all that courage bears.
      - [Piety]
