They who refuse education to a black man would turn the South into a vast poorhouse, and labor into a pendulum, necessity vibrating between poverty and indolence.
      - [Emancipation Day]

Thine, O death, was the furrow; we cast therein the precious seed. Now let us wait and see what God shall bring forth for us. A single leaf falls--the bud at its axil will shoot forth many leaves. The husbandman bargains with the year to give back a hundred grains for the one buried. Shall God be less generous? Yet, when we sow, our hearts think that beauty is gone out, that all is lost. But when God shall bring again to our eyes the hundredfold beauty and sweetness of that which we planted, how shall we shame over that dim faith that, having eyes, saw not, and ears, heard not, though all heaven and all the earth appeared, and spake, to comfort those who mourn.
      - [Easter]

Think of a man in a chronic state of anger!
      - [Ill-nature]

Thinking is creating with God, as thinking is writing with the ready writer; and worlds are only leaves turned over in the process of composition, about his throne.
      - [Thought]

This world is God's workshop for making men in.
      - [Work]

This world is not a platform where you will hear Thalberg-piano-playing. It is a piano manufactory, where are dust and shavings and boards, and saws and files and rasps and sandpapers. The perfect instrument and the music will be hereafter.
      - [Life]

Thorough selfishness destroys or paralyzes enjoyment. A heart made selfish by the contest for wealth is like a citadel stormed in war, utterly shattered.
      - [Selfishness]

Thou, Everlasting Strength, hast set Thyself forth to bear our burdens. May we bear Thy cross, and bearing that; find there is nothing else to bear; and touching that cross, find that instead of taking away our strength, it adds thereto. Give us faith for darkness, for trouble, for sorrow, for bereavement, for disappointment; give us a faith that will abide though the earth itself should pass away--a faith for living, a faith for dying.
      - [Cross]

Though a man declares himself an atheist, it in no way alters his obligations.
      - [Atheism]

Titles are too "thin" for the nineteenth century.
      - [Titles]

To array a man's will against his sickness is the supreme art of medicine.
      - [Medicine]

To be a Christian is to obey Christ no matter how you feel.
      - [Obedience]

To the Christian, these shades are the golden haze which heaven's light makes, when it meets the earth, and mingles with its shadows.
      - [Death]

To the covetous man life is a nightmare, and God lets him wrestle with it as best he may.
      - [Covetousness]

Trouble teaches men how much there is in manhood.
      - [Man]

True elegance becomes the more so as it approaches simplicity.
      - [Simplicity]

True obedience is true liberty.
      - [Obedience]

True politeness is the spirit of benevolence showing itself in a refined way. It is the expression of good-will and kindness. It promotes both beauty in the man who possesses it, and happiness in those who are about him. It is a religious duty, and should be a part of religious training.
      - [Politeness]

Truthfulness is godliness.
      - [Godliness]

Undoubtedly we render our consciences callous by evil indulgences; but we cannot entirely subdue that still, small voice.
      - [Conscience]

Unless a man can link his written thoughts with the everlasting wants of men, so that they shall draw from them as from wells, there is no more immortality to the thoughts and feelings of the soul than to the muscles and the bones.
      - [Thought]

Victories that are cheap are cheap. Those only are worth having which come as the result of hard fighting.
      - [Victory]

Vigilance is not only the price of liberty, but of success of any sort.
      - [Vigilance]

Watch lest prosperity destroy generosity.
      - [Prosperity]

We are apt to believe in Providence so long as we have our own way; but if things go awry, then we think, if there is a God, He is in heaven, and not on earth.
      - [Providence]
