No man is fit to command another that cannot command himself.

It is a cruel folly to offer up to ostentation so many lives of creatures, as to make up the state of our treats.
Always rise from the table with an appetite, and you will never sit down without one.
Men are generally more careful of the breed of their horses and dogs than of their children.

The country life is to be preferred, for there we see the works of God, but in cities little else but the works of men.
He that lives to live forever, never fears dying.
They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies, nor can spirits ever be divided that love and live in the same divine principle.
We have a call to do good, as often as we have the power and occasion.
Do good with what thou hast, or it will do thee no good.
Where Example keeps pace with Authority, Power hardly fails to be obey'd.
