Joy comes, grief goes, we know not how.

A great man is made up of qualities that meet or make great occasions.
Good luck is the willing handmaid of a upright and energetic character, and conscientious observance of duty.

A weed is no more than a flower in disguise, Which is seen through at once, if love give a man eyes.
