How little our libraries cost us as compared with our liquor cellars
We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth.
Cultivate all your faculties; you must either use them or lose them
There are temptations which strong exercise best enables us to resist
Many of the greatest men have owed their success to industry rather than to cleverness
Your character will be what you yourself choose to make it.
When we have done our best, we should wait the result in peace.
Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like the violin.
A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.
