Through all God's works there runs a beautiful harmony. The remotest truth in His universe is linked to that which lies nearest the throne.
      - [Science]

To me there is something thrilling and exalting in the thought that we are drifting forward into a splendid mystery,--into something that no mortal eye has yet seen, no intelligence has yet declared.
      - [Future]

To-morrow may never come to us. We do not live in to-morrow. We cannot find it in any of our title-deeds. The man who owns whole blocks of real estate, and great ships on the sea, does not own a single minute of to-morrow. To-morrow! It is a mysterious possibility, not yet born. It lies under the seal of midnight, behind the veil of glittering constellations.
      - [Tomorrow]

Tribulation will not hurt you unless it does--what, alas! it too often does--unless it hardens you, and makes you sour and narrow and sceptical.
      - [Trouble]

Truth is the root, but human sympathy is the flower of practical life.
      - [Sympathy]

Under the shadow of earthly disappointment, all unconscious to ourselves, our Divine Redeemer is walking by our side.
      - [Trials]

Valincourt said, when his library was destroyed by fire, "A man must have profited very little by his books who has not learned how to part with them."
      - [Resignation]

We have not the innocence of Eden; but by God's help and Christ's example we may have the victory of Gethsemane.
      - [Innocence]

We may learn by practice such things upon earth as shall be of use to us in heaven. Piety, unostentatious piety, is never out of place.
      - [Piety]

We move too much in platoons; we march by sections; we do not live in our vital individuality enough; we are slaves to fashion, in mind and in heart, if not to our passions and appetites.
      - [Individuality]

We must be in some way like God in order that we may see God as He is.
      - [God]

What a proof of the Divine tenderness is there in the human heart itself, which is the organ and receptacle oft so many sympathies! When we consider how exquisite are those conditions by which it is even made capable of so much suffering--the capabilities of a child's heart, of a mother's heart,--what must be the nature of Him who fashioned its depths, and strung its chords.
      - [Heart]

Whatever touches the nerves of motive, whatever shifts man's moral position, is mightier than steam or caloric or lightning.
      - [Motive]

Why, man of idleness, labor has rocked you in the cradle, and nourished your pampered life; without it, the woven silk and the wool upon your bank would be in the shepherd's fold. For the meanest thing that ministers to human want, save the air of heaven, man is indebted to toil; and even the air, in God's wise ordination, is breathed with labor.
      - [Industry]
