Taste is something quite different from fashion, superior to fashion.
      - [Taste]

That acknowledgment of weakness which we make in imploring to be relieved from hunger and from temptation is surely wisely put in our daily prayer. Think of it, you who are rich, and take heed how you turn a beggar away.
      - [Dependence]

That which we call a snob by any other name would still be snobbish.
      - [Snobs]

The affection of young ladies is of as rapid growth as Jack's beanstalk, and reaches up to the sky in a night.
      - [Affection]

The best of women are hypocrites.
      - [Deceit]

The death of a child occasions a passion of grief and frantic tears, such as your end, brother reader, will never inspire.
      - [Children]

The great moments of life are but moments like the others. Your doom is spoken in a word or two. A single look from the eyes; a mere pressure of the hand, may decide it; or of the lip,s though they cannot speak.
      - [Opportunity : Trifles]

The great quality of Dulness is to be unalterably contented with itself.
      - [Contentment]

The ladies--Heaven bless them!--are, as a general rule, coquettes from babyhood upwards.
      - [Coquette]

The tallest and the smallest among us are so alike diminutive and pitifully base, it is a meanness to calculate the difference.
      - [Equality]

The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar, and familiar things new.
      - [Authorship]

The wicked are wicked, no doubt, and they go astray and they fall, and they come by their deserts; but who can tell the mischief which the very virtuous do?
      - [Sin]

The world is full of love and pity. Had there been less suffering, there would have been less kindness.
      - [Pity]

Them's my sentiments.
      - [Thought]

There are other books in a man's library besides Ovid, and after dawdling ever so long at a woman's knee, one day he gets up and is free. We have all been there; we have all had the fever--the strongest and the smallest, from Samson, Hercules, Rinaldo, downward: but it burns out, and you get well.
      - [Devotion]

There is no man that can teach us to be gentlemen better than Joseph Addison.
      - [Gentlemen]

They say it was Liston's firm belief, that he was a great and neglected tragic actor; they say that every one of us believes in his heart, or would like to have others believe, that he is something which he is not.
      - [Conceit]

Time passes, Time the consoler, Time the anodyne.
      - [Time]

To be rich, to be famous? do these profit a year hence, when other names sound louder than yours, when you lie hidden away under ground, along with the idle titles engraven on your coffin? But only true love lives after you, follows your memory with secret blessings or pervades you, and intercedes for you. Non omnis moriar, if, dying, I yet live in a tender heart or two; nor am lost and hopeless, living, if a sainted departed soul still loves and prays for me.
      - [Fame]

To be thought rich is as good as to be rich.
      - [Riches]

To endure is greater than to dare.
      - [Patience]

To our betters eve can reconcile ourselves, if you please--respecting them sincerely, laughing at their jokes, making allowance for their stupidities, meekly suffering their insolence; but we can't pardon our equals going beyond us.
      - [Envy]

True love is better than glory.
      - [Love]

Vanity is often the unseen spur.
      - [Vanity]

We are most of us very lonely in this world; you who have any who love you, cling to them and thank God.
      - [Friendship]
