Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.
We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
College isn't the place to go for ideas.
One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Your success and happiness lie in you. . . . Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
