A smile abroad is often a scowl at home.


What rights are those that dare not resist for them?


Who is wise in love, love most, say least.


There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.


Tis not too late to seek a newer world.


He makes no friends who never made a foe.


Such a one do I remember, whom to look at was love.


There's no glory like those who save their country.


Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?


Guard your roving thoughts with a jealous care, for speech is but the dialer of thoughts, and every fool can plainly read in your words what is the hour of your thoughts.


I the heir of all the ages, in the foremost files of time.


Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.


A day may sink or save a realm.


Ring out the false, ring in the true.


The same words conceal and declare the thoughts of men.


Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.


Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.


Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead one to sovereign power.


We cannot be kind to each other here for even an hour. We whisper, and hint, and chuckle and grin at our brother's shame; however you take it we men are a little breed.


Authority forgets a dying king.
