The fact is that sin is the most unmanly thing in God's world. You never were made for sin and selfishness. You were made for love and obedience.
      - [Sin]

The faculties of our souls differ as widely as the features of our faces and the forms of our frames.
      - [Soul]

The faculty of self-help is that which distinguished man from animals; that it is the Godlike element, or holds within itself the Godlike element, of his constitution.
      - [Self-help]

The gentleman is solid mahogany; the fashionable man is only veneer.
      - [Gentlemen]

The great soul that sits on the throne of the universe is not, never was, and never will be, in a hurry.
      - [God]

The hammer and the anvil are the two hemispheres of every true reformer's character.
      - [Power]

The idle man stands outside of God's plan, outside of the ordained scheme of things; and the truest self-respect, the noblest independence, and the most genuine dignity, are not to be found there.
      - [Idleness]

The man who loves home best, and loves it most unselfishly, loves his country best.
      - [Patriotism]

The mind grows by what it feeds on.
      - [Thought]

The moment that law is destroyed, liberty is lost, and men, left free to enter upon the domains of each other, destroy each other's rights, and invade the field of each other's liberty.
      - [Law]

The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman's heart.
      - [Love]

The pleasant converse of the fireside, the simple songs of home, the words of encouragement as I bend over my school-tasks, the kiss as I lie down to rest, the patient bearing with the freaks of my restless nature, the gentle counsels mingled with reproofs and approvals, the sympathy that meets and assuages every sorrow, and sweetens every little success--all these return to me amid the responsibilities which press upon me now, and I feel as if I had once lived in heaven, and, straying, had lost my way.
      - [Home]

The proverbs of a nation, furnish the index to its spirit, and the results of its civilization.
      - [Proverbs (General)]

The secret of being loved is in being lovely; and the secret of being lovely is in being unselfish.
      - [Unselfishness]

The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
      - [Soul]

The sweetest type of heaven is home--nay, heaven is the home for whose acquisition we are to strive the most strongly. Home, in one form and another, is the great object of life. It stands at the end of every day's labor, and beckons us to its bosom; an life would be cheerless and meaningless, did we not discern across the river that divides us from the life beyond, glimpses of the pleasant mansions prepared for us.
      - [Home]

The theological systems of men and schools of men are determined always by the character of their ideal of Christ, the central fact of the Christian system.
      - [Theology]

There are no twin souls in God's universe.
      - [Soul]

There is a contemptibly quiet path for all those who are afraid of the blows and clamor of opposing forces. There is no honorable fighting for a man who is not ready to forget that he has a head to be battered and a name to be bespattered. Truth wants no champion who is not as ready to be struck as to strike for her.
      - [Courage]

There is no great achievement that is not the result of patient working and waiting.
      - [Patience]

There is no point where art so nearly touches nature as when it appears in the form of words.
      - [Words]

There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast withers rapidly; that which grows slowly endures.
      - [Perseverance]

There is no truth which personal vice will not distort.
      - [Vice]

There is no well-doing, no Godlike doing, that is not patient doing.
      - [Patience]

There is nothing more precious to a man than his will; there is nothing which he relinquishes with so much reluctance.
      - [Will]
