We may print, but not stereotype, our opinions.
      - [Opinion]

Weak arguments are often thrust before my path; but although they are most unsubstantial, it is not easy to destroy them. There is not a more difficult feat known than to cut through a cushion with a sword.
      - [Argument]

When any person of really eminent virtue becomes the object of envy, the clamor and abuse by which he is assailed is but the sign and accompaniment of his success in doing service to the public. And if he is a truly wise man, he will take no more notice of it than the moon does of the howling of the dogs. Her only answer to them is to shine on.
      - [Envy]

When men have become heartily wearied of licentious anarchy, their eagerness has been proportionately great to embrace the opposite extreme of rigorous despotism.
      - [Despotism]

Woman is like the reed which bends to every breeze, but breaks not in the tempest.
      - [Women]

Women never reason, or, if they do, they either draw correct inferences from wrong premises, or wrong inferences from correct premises; and they always poke the fire from the top.
      - [Reason]

Bishop Warburton is reported to have said that high birth was a thing which he never knew any one disparage except those who had it not, and he never knew any one make a boast of it who had anything else to be proud of.
      - Annotations of Bacon's Essay, Of Nobility
        [Ancestry]

It is folly to expect men to do all that they may reasonably be expected to do.
      - Apophthegms [Expectation]

It is one thing to wish to have truth on our side, and another to wish sincerely to be on the side of truth.
      - Essay on some of the Difficulties in the Writings of the Apostle Paul
         (no. 1, On the Love of Truth) [Truth]

"Honesty is the best policy," but he who acts on that principle is not an honest man.
      - Thoughts and Apthegms
         (pt. II, ch. XVIII, Pious Frauds)
        [Honesty]
