Self-contemplation is apt to end in self-conceit.
      - [Self-conceit]

Self-denial does not belong to religion as characteristic of it; it belongs to human life; the lower nature must always be denied when you are trying to rise to a higher sphere.
      - [Self-denial]

Self-government by the whole people is the teleologic idea. The republican form of government is the noblest and the best, as it is the latest.
      - [Government]

Selfishness at the expense of others' happiness is demonism.
      - [Selfishness]

Selfishness is that detestable vice which no one will forgive in others, and no one is without in himself.

So we fall asleep in Jesus. We have played long enough at the games of life, and at last we feel the approach of death. We are tired out, and we lay our heads back on the bosom of Christ, and quietly fall asleep.
      - [Death]

Some men are like pyramids, which are very broad where they touch the ground, but grow narrow as they reach the sky.
      - [Mind]

Some men are, in regard to ridicule, like tin-roofed buildings in regard to hail: all that hits them bounds rattling off; not a stone goes through.

Some men give so that you are angry every time you ask them to contribute. They give so that their gold and silver shoot you like a bullet. Other persons give with such beauty that you remember it as long as you live; and you say, "It is a pleasure to go to such men." There are some men that give as springs do: whether you go to them or not, they are always full; and your part is merely to put your dish under the ever-flowing stream. Others give just as a pump does where the well is dry, and the pump leaks.
      - [Gifts]

Some men will not shave on Sunday, and yet they spend all the week in shaving their fellow-men; and many folks think it very wicked to black their boots on Sunday morning, yet they do not hesitate to black their neighbor's reputation on week-days.
      - [Intolerance]

Some of God's noblest sons, I think, will be selected from those that know how to take wealth, with all its temptations, and maintain godliness therewith. It is hard to be a saint standing in a golden niche.

Some one calls biography the home aspect of history.
      - [Biography]

Some people are proud of their humility.
      - [Pride]

Sophistry is the fallacy of argument.
      - [Sophistry]

Sorrow is Mount Sinai. If one will, one may go up and talk with God, face to face.
      - [Sorrow]

      - [Sorrow]

Sorrows, as storms, bring down the clouds close to the earth; sorrows bring heaven down close; and they are instruments of cleansing and purifying.
      - [Sorrow]

Success is full of promise till a man gets it; and then it is last year's nest from which the birds have flown.
      - [Success]

Success surely comes with conscience in the long run, other things being equal. Capacity and fidelity are commercially profitable qualities.
      - [Success]

Suffering is part of the divine idea.
      - [Suffering]

Take all the robes of all the good judges that have ever lived on the face of the earth, and they would not be large enough to cover the iniquity of one corrupt judge.

That is true culture which helps us to work for the social betterment of all.
      - [Culture]
