Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.

Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always to be blest.

Education forms the common mind. Just as the twig is bent, the tree's inclined.

Be not the first by whom the new are tried, Nor yet the last to lay the old aside.

The way of the Creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the Great Harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Many men have been capable of doing a wise thing, more a cunning thing, but very few a generous thing.

Slave to no sect, who takes no private road, But looks through Nature up to Nature's God.

There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.

To be angry is to revenge the faults of others on ourselves.

All nature is but art unknown to thee.

On life's vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the card, but passion the gale.

No woman ever hates a man for being in love with her, but many a woman hate a man for being a friend to her.

Pride is still aiming at the best houses: Men would be angels, angels would be gods. Aspiring to be gods, if angels fell; aspiring to be angels men rebel.

The ruling passion, be it what it will. The ruling passion conquers reason still.

Teach me to feel another's woe, to hide the fault I see, that mercy I to others show, that mercy show to me.

To err is human; to forgive, divine.
