Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness, and its power of endurance. The cheerful man will do more in the same time, will do it better, and will preserve it longer.
Man makes circumstances, and spiritually as well as economically, is the artificer of his own fortune.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
From the lowliest depth there is a path to the loftiest height.
The great law of culture is: let each become all that he was created capable of being.
