Men, like bullets, go farthest when they are smoothest.
Jean Paul Richter (1763 - 1825)

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.
Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good; try to use ordinary situations.
The last, best fruit which comes to late perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard, forbearance toward the unforbearing, warmth of heart toward the cold, philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
Only actions give life strength; only moderation gives it charm.
A man never shows his own character so plainly as by his manner of portraying another's.
