A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best but what he has said or done otherwise shall give him no peace.



I have thought a sufficient measure of civilization is the influence of good women.



The age of a woman doesn’t mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.









Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.





Truth is handsomer than the affectation of love. Your goodness must have some edge to it, else it is none.




Every mind must make its choice between truth and repose. It cannot have both.





Trust men and they will be true to you treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.
