Do not ask for what you will wish you had not got.
It is with life as with a play-it matters not how long the action is spun out, but how good the acting is.
He who decides a case without hearing the other side . . . though he decides justly, cannot be considered just.
The mind that is anxious about the future is miserable.
There is nothing which persevering effort and unceasing and diligent care can not accomplish.
To wish well is part of becoming well.
We can be thankful to a friend for a few acres, or a little money; and yet for the freedom and command of the whole earth, and for the great benefits of our being, our life, health, and reason, we look upon ourselves as under no obligation.
We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.
Where silence is not allowed, what then is permissible?
