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.

False eloquence is exaggeration; true eloquence is emphasis.
The line of life is a ragged diagonal between duty and desire.
Proverbs are mental gems gathered in the diamond fields of the mind.
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.
