Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.
Man's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell.
The smallest children are nearest to God, as the smallest planets are nearest the sun
Our memories are the only paradise from which we can never be expelled.
It is easier and handier for men to flatter than to praise.
God has sown his name on the heavens in glittering stars; but on earth he planteth his name by tender flowers.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Sorrows are like thunderclouds, in the distance they look black, over our heads scarcely gray.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
The last, best fruit which comes to late perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard, forbearance toward the unforbearing, warmth of heart toward the cold, philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
