Neutral men are the devil's allies.

Every action in our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.

Pride is the master sin of the devil, and the devil is the father of lies.

Ostentation is the signal flag of hypocrisy.

The essence of justice is mercy.

Skepticism has never founded empires, established principals, or changed the world's heart. The great doers in history have always been people of faith.

Do not judge from mere appearances; for the lift laughter that bubbles on the lip often mantles over the depths of sadness, and the serious look may be the sober veil that covers a divine peace and joy. The bosom can ache beneath diamond brooches; and many a blithe heart dances under coarse wool.

At the bottom of not a little of the bravery that appears in the world, there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they have not the courage to face public opinion.
