Never put off till tomorrow what you can
Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
Never spend your money before you have it.
Never but what you do not want, because it is cheap; it will be dear to you.
Pride cost us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
We never repent of having eaten too little.
Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
How much pain have cost us the evils which have never happen.
Take things away by there smooth handle.
When angry, count to ten, before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.

I ought to reflect again and again, and yet again, that the beings that I have to steer are just as inevitable in the scheme of evolution as I am myself; have just as much right to be themselves as I am entitled to; and they all deserve from me as much sympathy as I give to myself. -Arnold Bennett
He who can not forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass. -George Herbert

We often think of ourselves as living in a world which no longer has any unexplored frontiers. We speak of pioneering as a thing of the past. But in doing so we forget that the greatest adventure of all still challenges us-what Mr. Justice Holmes called "the adventure of the human mind" Men may be hemmed in geographically, but every generation stands on the frontiers if the mind. In the world of ideas, there is always pioneering to be done, and it can be done by anyone who will use the equipment with which he is endowed. The great ideas belong to everyone. -Mortimer J. Adler
God never gave a man a thing to do concerning which it would be irreverent to ponder how the Son of God would have done it. -George Macdonald

The capacity to believe is the most significant and fundamental human faculty, and the most important thing about any man is what he believes in the depth of his being. This is the thing that makes him what he is; the thing that organizes him and feeds him; the thing that keeps him going in the face of untold circumstances; the thing that gives him resistance and drive. Let neutrality, confusion, indifference, or skepticism enter this inner place, and the very springs of life will cease to flow. -Hugh Stevenson Tigner
