You can forgive people who do not follow you through a philosophical disquisition; but to find your wife laughing when you had tears in your eyes, or staring when you were in a fit of laughter, would go some way towards a dissolution of the marriage.
You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.
You can kill the body but not the spirit.
You cannot run away from weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
No man is useless while he has a friend.
Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.
