Author Quotes

Before you think of retiring from the world, be sure you are fit for retirement; in order to which it is necessary that you have a mind so composed by prudence, reason, and religion, that it may bear being looked into; a turn to rural life, and a love of study.

In prosperity prepare for a change; in adversity hope for one.

No state can be more destitute than that of a person, who, when the delights of sense forsake him, has no pleasures of the mind.
