Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
      - [Opposition]

Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society.
      - [Lying]

Everything is prospective, and man is to live hereafter. That the world is for his education is the only sane solution of the enigma.
      - [Immortality]

Everything runs to excess; every good quality is noxious if unmixed.
      - [Excess]

Evil is merely privative, not absolute: it is like cold, which is the privation of beat.
      - [Evil]

Faith makes us, and not we it; and faith makes its own forms.
      - [Faith]

Fame is proof that people are gullible.
      - [Fame]

Fate is unpenetrated causes.
      - [Fate]

Fear is cruel and mean.
      - [Fear]

Fear is the instructor of great sagacity, and the herald of all revolutions.
      - [Fear]

Flowers and fruits are always fit presents--flowers, because they are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
      - [Flowers]

For every benefit you receive a tax is levied.
      - [Taxation]

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.
      - [Anger]

For if in any manner we can stimulate this instinct, new passages are opened for us into nature, the mind flows into and through things hardest and highest, and the metamorphosis is possible.
      - [Change]

For this is Love's nobility,--
  Not to scatter bread and gold
    Goods and raiment bought and sold;
      But to hold fast his simple sense,
        And speak the speech of innocence,
          For he that feeds men serveth few;
            He serves all who dares be true.
      - [Love]

Freedom all winged expands,
  Nor perches in a narrow place;
    Her broad van seeks unplanted lands;
      She loves a poor and virtuous race.
        Clinging to a colder zone
          Whose dark sky sheds the snow-flake down,
            The snow-flake is her banner's star,
              Her stripes the boreal streamers are.
                Long she loved the Northman well;
                  Now the iron age is done,
                    She will not refuse to dwell
                      With the offspring of the Sun.
      - [Freedom]

Friendship buys friendship.
      - [Friendship]

Friendship is an order of nobility; from its revelations we come more worthily into nature.
      - [Friendship]

Friendship requires more time than poor busy men can usually command.
      - [Friendship]

From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.
      - [Light]

Genius is intellect constructive.
      - [Intellect]

Genius is its own end, and draws its means and the style of its architecture from within, going abroad only for audience, and spectator, as we adapt our voice and phrase to the distance and character of the ear we speak to.
      - [Genius]

Genius, even, as it is the greatest good, is he greatest harm.
      - [Genius]

Give a boy address and accomplishments, and you give him the mastery of palaces and fortunes where he foes. He has not the trouble of earning or owning them; they solicit him to enter and possess.
      - [Address]

Give all to love; obey thy heart.
      - [Love]
