Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in life.
Jean Paul Richter (1763 - 1825)

Has it never occurred to us, when surrounded by sorrows, that they may be sent to us only for our instruction.
How narrow our souls become when absorbed in any present good or ill! It is only the thought of the future that makes them great.
Never does a man portray his own character more vividly than in his manner of portraying another.
Cheerfulness is the atmosphere under which all things thrive.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Men, like bullets, go farthest when they are smoothest.
What a father says to his children is not heard by the world, but it will be heard by posterity.
What Cicero said of men-that they are like wines, age souring the bad, and bettering the good-we can say of misfortune, that it has the same effect upon them.
Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time.
