Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me, With faith, with hope, with charity, That I may run, rise, rest with Thee.

Be calm in arguing; for fierceness makes Error a fault and truth discourtesy.
Source: The Temple. The Church Porch
Calmness is great advantage; he that lets Another chafe, may warm him at his fire.
The best smell is bread; the best savor, salt; the best love, that of children.
He that knows nothing doubts nothing.
Storms make oaks take deeper root.
He that is not handsome at twenty, nor strong at thirty, nor rich at forty, nor wise at fifty, will never be handsome, strong, rich, or wise.
Who aimeth at the sky Shoots higher much than he that means a tree.
When you are an anvil, hold you still; when you are a hammer, strike your fill.
