Mortal beauty stings while it delights.
      - [Beauty]

Most books fail, not so much from a want of ability in their authors, as from an absence in their productions of a thorough development of their ability.
      - [Books]

Motives are better than actions. Men drift into crime. Of evil they do more than they contemplate, and of good they contemplate more than they do.
      - [Motive]

Music is the fourth great material want of our natures,--first food, then raiment, then shelter, then music.
      - [Music]
