Pretension almost always overdoes the original, and hence exposes itself.
Hosea Ballou (1771 - 1852)

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.
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.
