Quote of the Day
If thou wilt make a man happy, add not unto his riches but take away from his desires.
In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it - thou art a fool.
Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Mysterious love, uncertain treasure, hast thou more of pain or pleasure! Endless torments dwell about thee: Yet who would live, and live without thee!
O, thou art fairer than the evening air clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.
Where thou art, that is home.
In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.
Money is a handmaiden, if thou knowest how to use it; a mistress, if thou knowest not.
Living Life Tomorrow's fate, though thou be wise, Thou canst not tell nor yet surmise; Pass, therefore, not today in vain, For it will never come again.
Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Those who gave thee a body, furnished it with weakness; but He who gave thee Soul, armed thee with resolution. Employ it, and thou art wise; be wise and thou art happy.
Greatly begin. Though thou have time, but for a line, be that sublime. Not failure, but low aim is crime.
James Russell Lowell
Teach thy tongue to say 'I do not know,' and thou shalt progress.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so. For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow. Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crush of worlds.
Be not entangled in this world of days and nights; Thou hast another time and space as well.
Resolve and thou art free.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
O earth, what changes hast thou seen!
Alfred Lord Tennyson
O accursed hunger of gold, to what dost thou not compel human hearts!
If thou wouldst conquer thy weakness, thou must never gratify it.
Thou seest how sloth wastes the sluggish body, as water is corrupted unless it moves.
And I pray thee, loving Jesus, that as Thou hast graciously given me to drink in with delight the words of Thy knowledge, so Thou wouldst mercifully grant me to attain one day to Thee, the fountain of all wisdom and to appear forever before Thy face.
Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?
But curb thou the high spirit in thy breast, for gentle ways are best, and keep aloof from sharp contentions.
Thou art my single day, God lends to leaven What were all earth else, with a feel of heaven.
If thou suffer injustice, console thyself; the true unhappiness is in doing it.
