It is a part of good breeding that a man should be polite even to himself.
      - [Politeness]

It is a well-known psychological fact that the conscience of children is formed by the influences that surround them; and that their notions of good and evil are the result of the moral atmosphere they breathe.
      - [Example]

It is easy to flatter; it is harder to praise.
      - [Flattery]

It is good to respect old thoughts in the newest books, because the old works in which they stand are not read. New translations of many truths, as of foreign standard works, must be given forth every half-century.
      - [Quotations]

It is only reason that teaches silence. The heart teaches us to speak.
      - [Silence]

It is our kindest and tenderest emotion which we screen from the world.
      - [Emotion]

It is the only paradise out of which we cannot be driven.
      - [Retrospection]

Joys are our wings, sorrows are our spurs.
      - [Joy]

Let a woman once give you a task, and you are hers, heart and soul; all your care and trouble lend new charms to her for whose sake they are taken. To rescue, to revenge, to instruct, or protect a woman is all the same as to love her.
      - [Courtship]

Let us accept different forms of religion among men, as we accept different languages, wherein there is still but one human nature expressed. Every genius has most power in his own language, and every heart in its own religion.
      - [Religion]

Letters which are warmly sealed are often but coldly opened.
      - [Letters]

Liars act like the salt miners; they undermine the truth, but leave just so much standing as is necessary to support the edifice.
      - [Truth]

Life, like the water of the seas, freshens only when it ascends toward heaven.
      - [Life]

Lift thyself up, look around, and see something higher and brighter than earth, earthworms, and earthly darkness.
      - [Excelsior]

Like a morning dream, life becomes more and more bright the longer we live, and the reason of everything appears more clear. What has puzzled us before seems less mysterious, and the crooked paths look straighter as approach the end.
      - [Age]

Little joys refresh us constantly, like house-bread, and never bring disgust; and great ones, like sugar-bread, briefly, and then satiety.
      - [Joy]

Living religion grows not by the doctrines but by the narratives of the Bible: the best Christian religious doctrine is the life of Christ, and after that the sufferings and deaths of His followers, even those not related in Holy Writ.
      - [Religion]

Long talking begets short hearing, for people go away.
      - [Talking]

Look upon every day, O youth, as the whole of life, not merely as a section, and enjoy the present without wishing through haste, to spring on to another.
      - [Present]

Love requires not so much proofs, as expressions, of love. Love demands little else than the power to feel and to requite love.
      - [Love]

Love, like men, dies oftener of excess than of hunger.
      - [Inconstancy]

Man can only learn to rise from the consideration of that which he cannot surmount.
      - [Excelsior]

Many flowers open to the sun, but only one follows him constantly. Heart, be thou the sunflower, not only open to receive God's blessing, but constant in looking to Him.
      - [Heart]

Memory, wit, fancy, acuteness, cannot grow young again in old age; but the heart can.
      - [Heart]

Men ascribe a great value in the sight of God to their barren belief. Why are we so anxious that our neighbor should have our faith and not our practice?
      - [Belief]
