      - [Punishment]

Don't seem to he on the lookout for crows, else you'll set other people watching.
      - [Suspicion]

Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult.
      - [Falsehood]

      - [Flowers]

I could not live in peace if I put the shadow of a wilful sin between myself and God.

I desire no future that will break the ties of the past.
      - [Past]

I have been a great deal happier since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I could not have my own will. Our life is determined for us; and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us and doing what is given us to do.
      - [Resignation]

I like not only to be loved, but to be told that I am loved.
      - [Love]

I like to read about Moses best, in th' Old Testament. He carried a hard business well through, and died when other folks were going to reap the fruits; a man must have courage to look after his life so, and think what'll come f it after he's dead and gone.
      - [Courage]

I think I am quite wicked with roses. I like to gather them, and smell them till they have no scent left.

      - [Experience]

I trust you as holy men trust God; you could do nought that was not pure and loving, though the deed might pierce me unto death.

I'm proof against that word "failure." I've seen behind it. The only failure a man ought to fear is failure in cleaving to the purpose he sees to be best.

      - [Religion]

      - [Ignorance]

Impatient people, according to Bacon, are like the bees, and kill themselves in stinging others.
      - [Impatience]

In high vengeance there is noble scorn.
      - [Vengeance]

In so complex a thing as human nature, we must consider it is hard to find rules without exception.
      - [Human Nature]

In the man whose childhood has known caresses, there is always a fibre of memory that can be touched to gentle issues.
      - [Children]

In travelling
  I shape myself betimes to idleness
    And take fools' pleasure.
      - [Travel]
