Men often make up in wrath what they want in reason.

Public opinion is a second conscience.
A crowd always thinks with its sympathy, never with its reason.
The wealth of a soul is measured by how much it can feel; its poverty by how little.
What is the highest secret to victory and peace? To will what God wills, and strike a league with destiny.
Words of love, are works of love.
We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain.
Aphorisms are portable wisdom, the quintessential extracts of thought and feeling.
A blue eye is a true eye; Mysterious is a dark one, Which flashes like a spark sun! A black eye is the best one.
