And life is perfected by death.

MRS. BROWNING.

Never was greater mistake than to hate

Try loving.

I thank thee, Almighty God, that thou hast produced no second edition of this man!

All men, if they work not as in a Great Task-Master's eye, will work wrong, work unhappily for themselves and you.

CARLYLE.

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on; nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a word of it.

OMAR KHAYYAM.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.

That is the best government which desires to make the people happy and knows how to make them happy.

Because right is right, to follow right

Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence.

TENNYSON.

The eternal stars shine out as soon as it is dark enough.

CARLYLE.

The man who cannot wonder, who does not habitually wonder and worship, is but a pair of spectacles behind which there is no

Ill that he blesses is our good,

And unblest good is ill.

If it be his sweet will.

All as God wills, who wisely heeds
To give or to withhold,

And knoweth more of all my needs
Than all my prayers have told.

WHITTIER.
