Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.
Hosea Ballou (1771 - 1852)

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.
Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine.
Brevity and conciseness are the parents of correction.
Doubt is an incentive to truth, and patient inquiry leadeth the way.
Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends toward the formation of character.
