In the adversity of our best friends we often find something that does not displease us.

There is no knowledge, no light, no wisdom that you are in possession of, but what you have received it from some source.

Silence may be golden, but can you think of a better way to entertain someone than to listen to him?

I want to live perfectly above the law, and make it my servant instead of my master.

If I had a choice of educating my daughters or my sons because of opportunity constraints, I would choose to educate my daughters.

Don't try to tear down other people's religion about their ears, Build up your own perfect structure of truth, and invite your listeners to enter in and enjoy it's glories.

We should never permit ourselves to do anything that we are not willing to see our children do.

It is wise for us to forget our troubles, there are always new ones to replace them.
