Purpose is what gives life a meaning.

Purposelessness is the fruitful mother of crime.

Science is busy with the hither-end of things, not the thither-end.

Sin spoils the spirit's delicacy, and unwillingness deadens its susceptibility.

So far from genius discarding law, rather is it the supreme joy of genius to re-enact the eternal and unwritten law in the chamber of its own intel-lect.

Sympathy is two hearts tugging at one load.
      - [Sympathy]

The old echoes are long in dying.

We are to-day treading in the same steps that other historic republics have taken and regretted--luxury and extravagance attending upon wealth, general laxity in morality and religion, jealousies and discontents incident to poverty among the masses, bitter conflicts between political parties, abuse heaped upon public servants, favors shown to the most dangerous classes when they can be used to promote party interests. These were the reasons why the historic republics fell into degradation, disgrace, and death. The greatest danger threatening our republic to-day is promiscuous immigration, and from this giant evil flood many perils, chief among which is the wholesale placing of the sacred ballot in the hands of those who have as yet done nothing entitling them to American citizenship. More than one republic has been wrecked on this rock.
      - [Discovery Day]

We cannot have the heart that Christ had and not in the same degree have His suffering. We may be sound in our doctrinal position, fight doctrinal heresy as though it were an exhalation from the under-world, be instant in our attendance upon the means of grace, statedly participate in the service memorial of our Lord's dying love, but a loving heart is what makes out the major part of the whole Christian matter--a heart, therefore, that feels others' burdens and griefs as though they were its own; and one cannot have such a heart in the midst of this world and not have an aching heart. It is aside from the mark to say that that makes of the Christian religion a gloomy religion. The gloom is not in the religion, the gloom is in the world, and sorrow of spirit like that of our Lord is simply the way tender-heartedness like that of our Lord is certain to be affected when the shadow of the world's suffering falls upon it.
      - [Good Friday]

Wonder is prophetic.
      - [Wonder]
