Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends toward the formation of character.
Hosea Ballou (1771 - 1852)

Energy, like the biblical grain of the mustard-seed, will remove mountains.
Theories are always very thin and insubstantial, experience only is tangible.
Falsehood is cowardice, the truth courage.
Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.
Disease is the retribution of outraged Nature.
Mystery and innocence are not akin.
Pretension almost always overdoes the original, and hence exposes itself.
A single bad habit will mar an otherwise faultless character, as an ink-drop soileth the pure white page.
Suspicion is far more apt to be wrong than right; oftener unjust than just. It is no friend to virtue, and always an enemy to happiness.
