Self-laudation abounds among the unpolished; but nothing can stamp a man more sharply as ill-bred.
      - [Boasting]

Stint yourself, as you think good, in other things; but don't scruple freedom in brightening home. Gay furniture and a brilliant garden are a sight day by day, and make life blither.
      - [Home]

Success soon palls. The joyous time is when the breeze first strikes your sails, and the waters rustle under your bows.
      - [Success]

The essential difference between a good and a bad education is this, that the former draws on the child to learn by making it sweet to him, the latter drives the child to learn, by making it sour to him if he does not.
      - [Education]

The first duty toward children is to make them happy. If you have not made them happy, you have wronged them; no other good they may get can make up for that.
      - [Children]

The role in carving holds good as to criticism: never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
      - [Criticism]

The rule in carving holds good as to criticism; never cut with a knife what you can cut with a spoon.
      - [Criticism]

The widow who has been bereft of her children may seem in after years no whit less placid, no whit less serenely gladsome; nay, more gladsome than the woman whose blessings are still round her. I am amazed to see how wounds heal.
      - [Widows]

The world abhors closeness, and all but admires extravagance; yet a slack hand shows weakness, a tight hand strength.
      - [Economy]

There are female women, and there are male women.
      - [Women]

To make pleasures pleasant shorten them.
      - [Pleasure]

We men are but poor, weak souls, after all; women beat us out and out in fortitude.
      - [Fortitude]

What you most repent of is a lasting sacrifice made under an impulse of good-nature. The goodness goes; the sacrifice sticks.
      - [Sacrifice]

Whenever you look at human nature in masses, you find every truth met by a counter truth, and both equally true.
      - [Truth]

Women see through and through each other; and often we most admire her whom they most scorn.
      - [Women]

You cannot win without sacrifice.
      - [Sacrifice]

You have only to watch other ill-natured people to resolve to be unlike them.
      - [Ills]

You will never "find" time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.
      - [Opportunity]

You would think, if our lips were made of horn and stuck out a foot or two from our faces, kisses at any rate would be done for. Not so. No creatures kiss each other so much as the birds.
      - [Kisses]
