Practical politics consists of ignoring facts.
A friend in power is a friend lost.
If I grapple with sin in my own strength, the devil knows he may go to sleep.
A teacher affects eternity. He can never tell where his influence stops.

Women have, commonly, a very positive moral sense; that which they will, is right; that which they reject, is wrong; and their will, in most cases, ends by settling the moral.
They know enough who know how to learn.
Friends are born, not made.
One friend in a lifetime is much; two are many; three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
