Morality, thou ly bane, Thy tens o' thousands thou has slain!
Suspicion is a heavy armor and with its weight it impedes more than it protects.
I pick my favorite quotation and store them in my mind as ready armor, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.
When chill November's surly blast make fields and forest bare.
Prudent, cautious self-control, is wisdom's root.
Learn taciturnity and let that be your motto!
I want someone to laugh with me, someone to be grave with me, someone to please me and help my discrimination with his or her own remark, and at times, no doubt, to admire my acuteness and penetration.
The heart and benevolent and kind the most resembles God.
Critics! Those cut-throat bandits in the paths of fame.
Firmness in enduring and exertion is a character I always wish to possess. I have always despised the whining yelp of complaint and cowardly resolve.
Their sighing , canting , grace-proud faces, their three-mile prayers, and half-mile graces.
Had we never lov'd sae kindly, Had we never lov'd sae blindly, Never met -- or never parted -- we had never been broken-hearted.
