For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.
Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.
Happiness is a perfume which you cannot pour on someone without getting some on yourself.
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Life is not so short but that there is always time enough for courtesy.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.
The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education, but the means to an education.
There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
There is no knowledge that is not power.
