Nothing dies so hard, or rallies so often, as intolerance.
If there's a job to be done, I always ask the busiest man in my parish to take it on and it gets done.
Law represents the effort of man to organize society; governments, the efforts of selfishness to overthrow liberty.

Genius unexerted is no more genius than a bushel of acorns is a forest of oaks.
Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness. Speak approving, cheering words while their ears can hear them and while their hearts can be thrilled by them.
God pardons like a mother, who kisses the offense into everlasting forgetfulness.
Good humor makes all things tolerable.
The worst thing in the world next to anarchy, is government.
He thinketh no evil
