Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs.
A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.
Adversity is a good school.
I would always rather be happy than dignified.
Remorse is the poison of life.
Oh! that gentleness! how far more potent is it than force!
Look twice before you leap.
It is always the way of events in this life,…no sooner have you got settled in a pleasant resting place, than a voice calls out to you to rise and move on, for the hour of repose is expired.
You know full well as I do the value of sisters’ affections: There is nothing like it in this world.
Better to be without logic than without feeling.
Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves.
I like rudeness a great deal better than flattery.
