Author Quotes

What has made this nation great? Not its heroes but its households.

There is something in the decay of nature that awakens thought, even in the most trifling mind.

There can be no education without leisure; and without leisure, education is worthless.

Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.

And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day
which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
to see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
but still it lingered near,

And waited patiently about,
till Mary did appear.

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
the eager children cry.

"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
the teacher did reply.

There is no impossibility to him who stands prepared to conquer every hazard. The fearful are the failing.

The temple of our purest thoughts is silence.

Those who would enjoyment gain must find it in the purpose they pursue.
