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.

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.

It is always good men who do the most harm in the world.
