and nobler life." - James Thompson Bixby
"Vice, that digs her own voluptuous tomb!" - Lord Byron
"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein
"Every rascal is not a thief, but every thief is a rascal." - Aristotle
"No hawk swooping down upon his prey, no stag improvising new detours by which to trick the huntsman, no dog scenting game from afar is comparable in speed to the celerity of a salesman when he gets wind a deal, to his skill in tripping up or forestalling a rival, and to the art with which he sniffs out and discovers a possible sale." - Honore de Balzac
"Most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already do." - James Harvey Robinson

"I can prove anything by statistics except the truth."
- George Canning
"The joys of parents are secret, and so are their griefs and fears; they cannot utter the one, nor they will not utter the other. Children sweeten labors, but they make misfortunes more bitter; increase the cares of life, but they mitigate the remembrance of death." - Francis Bacon
"The world is governed much more by opinion than by laws. It is not the judgment of courts, but the moral judgment of individuals and masses of men, which is the chief wall of defense around property and life. With the progress of society, this power of opinion is taking the place of arms."- William Ellery Channing

the better." - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The keys of some great organ, ye give forth
The music of the woodland depths, a hymn
Of gladness and of thanks." - William Cullen Bryant

Even so mayest thou the giddy men of Rome." - William Shakespeare

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd,
Buy me some peanuts and cracker-jack--
I don't care if I never get back."
- Jack Norworth
"A life without adventure is likely to be unsatisfying, but a life in which adventure is allowed to take whatever form it will is sure to be short." - Bertrand Arthur William Russell
"Waste cannot be accurately told, though we are sensible how destructive it is. Economy, on the one hand, by which a certain income is made to maintain a man genteelly; and waste, on the other, by which on the same income another man lives shabbily, cannot be defined. It is a very nice thing; as one man wears his coat out much sooner than another, we cannot tell how." - Samuel Johnson

By dint of time and experience I have learned to be a good post-horse; I go through my appointed daily stage, and I care not for the curs who bark at me along the road." - Frederick, the Great
Happy Easter! from David and Lisa
"Men, in whatever anxiety they may be, if they are men, sometimes indulge in relaxation." - Cicero
"By nature's kindly disposition most questions which it is beyond a man's power to answer do not occur to him at all." - George Santayana
"My country, right or wrong," is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying, "My mother, drunk or sober." - Gilbert Keith Chesterton
"Truth is one forever absolute, but opinion is truth filtered through the moods, the blood, the disposition of the spectator." - Wendell Phillips
"The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in time of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality." - Dante Alighieri

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain."

"In the intercourse of social life, it is by little acts of watchful kindness recurring daily and hourly,--and opportunities of doing kindnesses if sought for are forever starting up,--it is by words, by tones, by gestures, by looks, that affection is won and preserved. He who neglects these trifles yet boasts that, whenever a great sacrifice is called for, he shall be ready to make it, will rarely be loved. The likelihood is, he will not make it; and if he does, it will be much rather for his own sake than for his neighbor's." - George Augustus Henry Sala
"The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves." - William Penn

"Habit, if wisely and skillfully formed, becomes truly a second nature; but unskillfully and unmethodically depicted, it will be as it were an ape of nature, which imitates nothing to the life, but only clumsily and awkwardly." - Francis Bacon
"All my experience of the world teaches me that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred the safe side and the just side of a question is the generous side and the merciful side." - Mrs. Anna Brownell Jameson
"Fancy tortures more people than does reality." - Ouida
"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. Man may be civilized in some degree without great progress in manufactures and with little commerce with his distant neighbors. But without the cultivation of the earth, he is, in all countries, a savage. Until he gives up the chase and fixes himself in some place, and seeks a living from the earth, he is a roaming barbarian. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization." - Daniel Webster

"When illusions are over, when the distractions of sense, the vagaries of fancy, and the tumults of passion have dissolved even before the body is cold, which once they so thronged and agitated, the soul merges into intellect, intellect into conscience, consciences into the unbroken, awful solitude of its own personal accountability; and though the inhabitants of the universe were within the spirit's ken, this personal accountability is as strictly alone and unshared, as if no being were throughout immensity but the spirit and its God." - Henry Giles
FEBRUARY Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach!
The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps
And the broad arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering.
