Love is on the verge of hate each time it stoops for pardon.
      - [Pardon]

Love is rarely a hypocrite; but hate--how detect and how guard against it! It lurks where you least expect it; it is created by causes that you can the least foresee; and civilization multiplies its varieties, whilst it favors its disguise.
      - [Hate]

Love is the business of the idle, but the idleness of the busy.
      - [Love]

Love sacrifices all things to bless the thing it loves.
      - [Love]

Man hazards the condition and loses the virtues of freeman, in proportion as he accustoms his thoughts to view without anguish or shame his lapse into the bondage of debtor.
      - [Debt]

Man must be disappointed with the lesser things of life before he can comprehend the full value of the greater.
      - [Disappointment]

Men of strong affections are jealous of their own genius. They fear lest they should be loved for a quality, and not for themselves.
      - [Jealousy]

Men who make money rarely saunter; men who save money rarely swagger.
      - [Style]

Money never can be well managed if sought solely through the greed of money for its own sake. In all meanness there is a defect of intellect as well as of heart. And even the cleverness of avarice is but the cunning of imbecility.
      - [Misers]

More bounteous run rivers when the ice that locked their flow melts into their waters. And when fine natures relent, their kindness is swelled by the thaw.
      - [Forgiveness]

Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies. It wanders perturbedly through the halls and galleries of the memory, and is often heard again, distinct and living as when it first displaced the wavelets of the air.
      - [Music]

Nature never gives to a living thing capacities not particularly meant for its benefit and use. If Nature gives to us capacities to believe that we have a Creator whom we never saw, of whom we have no direct proof, who is kind and good and tender beyond all that we know of kindness and goodness and tenderness on earth, it is because the endowment of capacities to conceive a Being must be for our benefit and use; it would not be for our benefit and use if it were a lie.
      - [Christianity]

Nature's loving proxy, the watchful mother.
      - [Mothers]

Necessity is the only real sovereign in the world, the only despot for whom there is no law.
      - [Necessity]

Never get a reputation for a small perfection if you are trying for fame in a loftier area. The world can only judge by generals, and it sees that those who pay considerable attention to minutiae seldom have their minds occupied with great things.
      - [Character]

Never, be argued out of your soul, never be argued out of your honor, and never be argued into believing that soul and honor do not run a terrible risk if you limp into life with the load of a debt on your shoulders.
      - [Debt]

No reproach is like that we clothe in a smile, and present with a bow.
      - [Reproof]

No task is more difficult than systematic hypocrisy.
      - [Hypocrisy]

Nobody loves heartily unless people take pains to prevent it.
      - [Opposition]

Not in the knowledge of things without, but in the perfection of the soul within, lies the empire of man aspiring to be more than man.
      - [Soul]

Nothing but real love--(how rare it is; has one human heart in a million ever known it?) nothing but real love can repay us for the loss of freedom--the cares and fears of poverty--the cold pity of the world that we both despise and respect.
      - [Love]

Nothing can constitute good-breeding that has not good-nature for its foundation.
      - [Good Nature]

Nothing conveys a more inaccurate idea of a whole truth than a part of a truth so prominently brought forth as to throw the other parts into shadow. This is the art of caricature; and by the happy use of that art you might caricature the Apollo Belvidere.
      - [Caricature]

Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm; it moves stones, it charms brutes. Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, and truth accomplishes no victories without it.
      - [Enthusiasm]

Nothing so good as a university education, nor worse than a university without its education.
      - [Education]
