Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it foregoes revenge and dares to forgive an injury.
Not in achievement, but in endurance, of the human soul, does it show its divine grandeur and its alliance with the infinite.
Neutral men are the devil's allies.
The bosom can ache beneath diamond brooches; and many a blithe heart dances under coarse wool.
Every action of your life touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
