A fig for Time! Use him well, and he's a hearty follow.
      - [Time]

A good thing can't be cruel.
      - [Cruelty]

A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
      - [Affection]

A mob is usually a creature of very mysterious existence, particularly in a large city. Where it comes from, or whither it goes, few men can tell. Assembling and dispersing with equal suddenness, it is as difficult to follow to its various sources as the sea itself; nor does the parallel stop here, for the ocean is not more fickle and uncertain, more terrible when roused, more unreasonable or more cruel.
      - [Mob]

A wailing, rushing sound, which shook the walls an though a giant's hand were on them; then a hoarse roar, as if the sea had risen; then such a whirl and tumult, that the air seemed mad; and then, with a lengthened howl, the waves of wind swept on.
      - [Wind]

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
      - [Humanity]

Alas! how few of nature's faces there are to gladden us with their beauty! The cares and sorrows and hungerings of the world change them as they change hearts; and it is only when those passions sleep, and have lost their hold forever, that the troubled clouds pass off, and leave heaven's surface clear.
      - [Face]

An idea, like a ghost (according to the common notion of ghosts), must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.
      - [Ideas]

Buy an annuity cheap, and make your life interesting to yourself and everybody else that watches the speculation.
      - [Finance]

Credit is a system whereby a person who can't pay gets another person who can't pay to guarantee that he can pay.
      - [Credit]

Death is a mighty, universal truth.
      - [Death]

Dreams are the bright creatures of poem and legend, who sport on the earth in the night season, and melt away with the first beam of the sun which lights grim care and stern reality on their daily pilgrimage through the world.
      - [Dreams]

Every traveler has a home of his own, and he learns to appreciate it the more from his wandering.
      - [Travel]

He assigned it to regions more than tropical.
      - [Proverbs]

He did each single thing as if he did nothing else.
      - [Deeds]

He would make a lovely corpse.
      - [Death]

He'd make a lovely corpse.
      - [Death]

Hours are golden links--God's tokens reaching heaven.
      - [Hours]

I believe that Virtue shows quite as well in rags and patches as she does in purple and fine linen.
      - [Virtue]

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that--as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time.
      - [Christmas]

I have known a vast quantity of nonsense talked about bad men not looking you in the face. Don't trust that conventional idea. Dishonesty will stare honesty out of countenance any day in the week, if there is anything to be got by it.
      - [Dishonesty]

I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.
      - [Childhood : Children]

I made a compact with myself that in my person literature should stand by itself, of itself, and for itself.
      - in a speech at a Liverpool Banquet

I think it must somewhere be written that the virtues of mothers shall, occasionally, be visited on their children, as well as the sins of fathers.
      - [Mothers]

I think it's liquid aggravation that circulates through his veins, and not regular blood.
      - [Blood]
