Zitat des Tages von Charles Simmons:
The smallest number, with God and truth on their side, are weightier than thousands.
Never go backward. Attempt, and do it with all your might. Determination is power.
Much of the wisdom of one age, is the folly of the next.
A person's character is but half formed till after wedlock.
Promptitude is not only a duty, but is also a part of good manners; it is favorable to fortune, reputation, influence, and usefulness; a little attention and energy will form the habit, so as to make it easy and delightful.
Both mind and heart when given up to reveries and dreaminess, have a thousand avenues open for the entrance of evil.
Integrity is the first step to true greatness. Men love to praise, but are slow to practice it. To maintain it in high places costs self-denial; in all places it is liable to opposition, but its end is glorious, and the universe will yet do it homage.
It is a great evil, as well as a misfortune, to be unable to utter a prompt and decided 'no'.
For the most part fraud in the end secures for its companions repentance and shame.
Bigotry and intolerance, silenced by argument, endeavors to silence by persecution, in old days by fire and sword, in modern days by the tongue.
True greatness consists in being great in little things.
Malice can always find a mark to shoot at, and a pretence to fire.
