You cannot fight against the future. Time is on our side.
You do not reform a world by ignoring it.
Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions, but those who kindly reprove thy faults.
The heart of every man lies open to the shafts of correction if the archer can take proper aim.
Remorse begets reform.
To free a person from error is to give, and not to take away.
By continually scolding someone, they in time become accustomed to it and despise your reproof.
Tomorrow is the day when idlers work, and fool reform, and mortal men lay hold on heaven.
Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.
Reform is not pleasant, but grievous; no person can reform themselves without suffering and hard work, how much less a nation.
