Let each man think himself an act of God, His mind a thought, his life a breath of God; And let each try, by great thoughts and good deeds, To show the most of Heaven he hath in him.
Kindness is wisdom.
The long days are no happier than the short ones.
Respect is what we owe; love, what we give.
Simplicity is natures first step, and the last of art.
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
The sole equality on earth is death.
What men call accident is God’s own part.
Art is man’s nature; nature is God’s art.
Man is a military animal, glories in gunpowder, and loves parade.
