God pardons like a mother who kisses the offense into everlasting forgetfulness.
      - [God]

God planted fear in the soul as truly as He planted hope or courage. Fear is a kind of bell, or gong, which rings the mind into quick life and avoidance upon the approach of danger. It is the soul's signal for rallying.
      - [Fear]

God puts the excess of hope in one man, in order that it may be a medicine to the man who is despondent.
      - [Hope]

God sends experience to paint men's portraits.
      - [Experience]

God washes the eyes by tears until they can behold the invisible land where tears shall come no more. O love! O affliction! ye are the guides that show us the way through the great airy space where our loved ones walked; and, as hounds easily follow the scent before the dew be risen, so God teaches us, while yet our sorrow is wet, to follow on and find our dear ones in heaven.
      - [Affliction]

God wishes to exhaust all means of kindness before His hand takes hold on justice.
      - [God]

God's glory is His goodness.
      - [God]

God's men are better than the devil's men, and they ought to act as though they thought they were.
      - [Man]

God's providence is on the side of clear heads.
      - [Providence]

God's sovereignty is not in His right hand; God's sovereignty is not in His intellect; God's sovereignty is in His love.
      - [God]

Going out into life--that is dying. Christ is the door out of life.
      - [Death]

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who posses it.
      - [Good Nature]

Good-humor makes all things tolerable.
      - [Good Humor]

Good-nature is one of the richest fruits of true Christianity.
      - [Good Nature]

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength.
      - [Greatness]

Half the spiritual difficulties that men and women suffer arise from a morbid state of health.
      - [Difficulties]

Happiness is not the end of life; character is.
      - [Character]

Happy is the man who has that in his soul which acts upon the dejected as April airs upon violet roots. Gifts from the hand are silver and gold, but the heart gives that which neither silver nor gold can buy. To be full of goodness, full of cheerfulness, full of sympathy, full of helpful hope, causes a man to carry blessings of which he is himself as unconscious as a lamp is of its own shining. Such a one moves on human life as stars move on dark seas to bewildered mariners; as the sun wheels, bringing all the seasons with him from the south.
      - [Sympathy]

He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
      - [Ingratitude]

He must have an artist's eye for color and form who can arrange a hundred flowers as tastefully, in any other way, as by strolling through a garden, and picking here one and there one, and adding them to the bouquet in the accidental order in which they chance to come. Thus we see every summer day the fair lady coming in from the breezy side hill with gorgeous colors and most witching effects. If only she could be changed to alabaster, was ever a finer show of flowers in so fine a vase? But instead of allowing the flowers to remain as they were gathered, they are laid upon the table, divided, rearranged on some principle of taste, I know not what, but never again have that charming naturalness and grace which they first had.
      - [Flowers]

He that would look with contempt on the pursuits of the farmer, is not worthy the name of a man.
      - [Agriculture]

He who would look with contempt upon the farmer's pursuit is not worthy the name of a man.
      - [Agriculture]

Heaven is a place of restless activity, the abode of never-tiring thought.
      - [Heaven]

Heaven will be inherited by every man who has heaven in his soul.
      - [Heaven]

Home should be an oratorio of the memory, singing to all our after life melodies and harmonies of old-remembered joy.
      - [Home]
