Love prefers twilight to daylight.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening.
There is no friend like an old friend who has shared our morning days, no greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise.
But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.
The Amen of nature is always a flower.
The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness, of hatred, of jealousy, and, most easily of all, the gate of fear.
The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.
Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
