A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.
God pardons like a mother, who kisses the offense into everlasting forgiveness.
Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who possess it.

It is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.
