Man was mark'd
A friend in his creation to himself,
And may, with fit ambition, conceive
The greatest blessings, and the highest honors
Appointed for him, if he can achieve them
The right and noble way.
We have not an hour of life in which our pleasures relish not some pain, our sours, some sweetness.
How sweetly sounds the voice of a good woman! It is so seldom heard that, when it speaks, it ravishes all senses.
You are learned Europeans and we worse
Than ignorant Americans.
Though the desire of fame be the last weakness Wise men put off.
Tis the only discipline we are born for; all studies else are but as circular lines, and death the center where they all must meet.
Quote of the day
The future is an opaque mirror. Anyone who tries to look into it sees nothing but the dim outlines of an old and worried face.
