In wonder all philosophy began, in wonder it ends, and admiration fill up the interspace; but the first wonder is the offspring of ignorance, the last is the parent of adoration.
      - [Wonder]

In your intercourse with sects, the sublime and abstruse doctrines of Christian belief belong to the Church; but the faith of the individual, centred in his heart, is, or may be, collateral to them. Faith is subjective.
      - [Faith]

Intellect really exists in its products; its kingdom is here.
      - [Intellect]

Intense study of the Bible will keep any man from being vulgar in point of style.
      - [Bible]

It is a gentle and affectionate thought, that in immeasurable height above us, at our first birth, the wreath of love was woven with sparkling stars for flowers.
      - [Stars]

Language is the armory of the human mind, and at once contains the trophies of its past, and the weapons of its future conquests.
      - [Language]

Let every bookworm, when in any fragrant, scarce, old tome he discovers a sentence, a story, an illustration, that does his heart good, hasten to give it.
      - [Books : Quotations]

Love is the admiration and cherishing of the amiable qualities of the beloved person, upon the condition of yourself being the object of their action.
      - [Love]

Memory, bosom-spring of joy.
      - [Memory]

Men of genius are rarely much annoyed by the company of vulgar people, because they have a power of looking at such persons as objects of amusement of another race altogether.
      - [Genius]

Men of humor are always in some degree men of genius; wits are rarely so, although a man of genius may, amongst other gifts, possess wit, as Shakespeare.
      - [Genius]

Metaphysics,--the science which determines what can and what cannot be known of being and the laws of being.
      - [Metaphysics]

Method means primarily a way or path of transit. From this we are to understand that the first idea of method is a progressive transition from one step to another in any course. If in the right course, it will be the true method; if in the wrong, we cannot hope to progress.
      - [Method]

Milton has carefully marked in his Satan the intense selfishness, the alcohol of egotism, which would rather reign in hell than serve in heaven.
      - [Selfishness]

Motives are symptoms of weakness, and supplements for the deficient energy of the living principle, the law within us. Let them then be reserved for those momentous acts and duties in which the strongest and best-balanced natures must feel themselves deficient, and where humility no less than prudence prescribes deliberation.
      - [Motive]

Motives by excess reverse their very nature and instead of exciting, stun and stupefy the mind.
      - [Zeal]

Never yet did there exist a full faith in the Divine Word (by whom light as well as immortality was brought into the world) which did not expand the intellect, while it purified the heart--which did not multiply the aims and objects of the understanding, while it fixed and simplified those of the desires and passions.
      - [Faith]

No man does anything from a single motive.
      - [Motive]

No mind is thoroughly well organized that is deficient in a sense of humor.
      - [Humor]

Often do the spirits
  Of great events stride on before the events,
    And in to-day already walks to-morrow.
      - [Proverbs]

Oh, the difficulty of fixing the attention of men on the world within them!
      - [Self-examination]

On the Greek stage a drama, or acted story, consisted in reality of three dramas, called together a trilogy, and performed consecutively in the course of one day.
      - [Drama]

One should never be very forward in offering spiritual consolations to those in distress. These, to be of any service, must be self-evolved in the first instance.
      - [Conspiracy]
