Children are much nearer the inner truth of things than we are, for when their instincts are not perverted by the superfine wisdom of their elders, they give themselves up to a full, vigorous activity - theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

- F. Froebel


Joy is not in things, it is in us.

- Wagner



If we wish to be just judges of all things, let us first persuade ourselves of this: that there is not one of us without fault; no man is found who can acquit himself; and he who calls himself innocent does so with reference to a witness, and not to his conscience.

- Seneca



Happiness itself is sufficient excuse. Beautiful things are right and true; so beautiful actions are those pleasing to the gods. Wise men have an inward sense of what is beautiful, and the highest wisdom is to trust this intuition and be guided by it. The answer to the last appeal of what is right lies within a man's own breast. Trust thyself.

- Aristotle



Passion is a sort of fever in the mind, which ever leaves us weaker than it found us...

It, more than any thing, deprives us of the use of our judgment; for it raises a dust very hard to see through...

It may not be unfitly termed the mob of the man, that commits a riot on his reason.

- William Penn



The man who foolishly does me wrong, I will return to him the protection of my most ungrudging love; and the more evil comes from him, the more good shall go from me.

- Buddha



Self-confidence is the requisite to great undertakings.

- Samuel Johnson


The consciousness of being loved softens the keenest pang, even at the moment of parting; yea, even the eternal farewell is robbed of half its bitterness when uttered in accents that breathe love to the last sigh.

- Addison



I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

- Thomas Paine



The world is blessed most by men who do things, and not by those who merely talk about them.

- James Oliver



A man is an animal that writes.

- Homer



That they love beyond the world can not be separated by it. Death can not kill what never dies.

Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle, the root and record, of their friendship.

Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still..

There is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present because immortal.

- William Penn



There is quite as much education and true learning in the analysis of an ear of corn as in the analysis of a complex sentence; ability to analyze clover and alfalfa roots savors of quite as much culture as does the study of Latin and Greek roots.

- O. Benson
