Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you think is right and stick to it.

What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?

Where women love each other, men learn to smother their mutual dislike.

The beginning of an acquaintance whether with persons or things is to get a definite outline for our ignorance.

It always remains true that if we had been greater, circumstance would have been less strong against us.

Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.

There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and have recovered hope.
