The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.

Better not be at all than not be noble.
Ours not to reason why, ours but to do and die.
Authority forgets a dying king.
O earth, what changes hast thou seen!
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock those who work with him. Don’t knock your friends. Don’t knock your enemies. Don’t knock yourself.
The same words conceal and declare the thoughts of men.
We cannot be kind to each other here for even an hour. We whisper, and hint, and chuckle and grin at our brother’s shame; however you take it we men are a little breed.
