Hope is the nurse of misery.

American Proverb

Our deeds are like children that are born to us;they live and act apart from our own will.

George Eliot, Romola

All excess is ill, but drunkenness is of the worst sort. It spoils health, dismounts the mind, and unmans men. It reveals secrets, is quarrelsome, lascivious, impudent, dangerous and bad.

William Penn

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.

Gertrude Stein

Sometimes the only sense we can make out of life is a sense of humor.

American Greetings Card

The dancing pair that simply sought renown,By holding out to tire each other downThe swain mistrustless of his smutted face,While secret laughter titter'd round the placeThe bashful virgin's side-long looks of love,The matrons glance that would those looks reproveThese were thy charms, sweet village sports like these,With sweet succession, taught e'en toil to pleaseThese were thy bowers their cheerful influence shed,These were thy charms -- but all these charms are fled.

Oliver Goldsmith »

Health is worth more than learning.
