Man is the circled oak; woman the ivy.
Servile doubt argues an impotence of mind, that says we fear because we dare not meet misfortunes.
Shun fear, it is the ague of the soul! a passion man created for himself--for sure that cramp of nature could not dwell in the warm realms of glory.
Hide not thy tears; weep boldly, and be proud to give the flowing virtue manly way; it is nature's mark to know an honest heart by.
Youth is ever apt to judge in haste, and lose the medium in the wild extreme.
Mischief and malice grow on the same branch of the tree of evil.
Reason gains all people by compelling none.
Deceit is the false road to happiness; and all the joys we travel through to vice, like fairy banquets, vanish when we touch them.
The man who pauses on the paths of treason, Halts on a quicksand, the first step engulfs him.
She who means no mischief does it all.
