Books are lighthouses erected in the great sea of time
Cheerfulness in most cheerful people, is the rich and satisfying result of strenuous discipline
Whenever you find humor, you find pathos close by his side
Irony is an insult conveyed in the form of a compliment
The wise men of old have sent most of their morality down the stream of time in the light skiff of apothegm and epigram
A politician weakly and amiably in the right, is no match for a politician tenaciously and pugnaciously in the wrong.
Of the three prerequisites of genius; the first is soul; the second is soul; and the third is soul.
The saddest failures in life are those that come from not putting forth the power and will to succeed.
An epigram often flashes light into regions where reason shines but dimly
Felicity, not fluency of language, is a merit
In activity we must find our joy as well as glory; and labor, like everything else that is good, is its own reward.
