Something there is that doesn't love a wall, That wants it down

A mother takes twenty years to make a man of her boy, and another woman makes a fool of him in twenty minutes.
Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.
You don't have to deserve your mother's love. You have to deserve your father s. He's more particular. The father is always a Republican towards his son, and his mother's always a Democrat.
Time and tide wait for no man, but time always stands still for a woman of 30.
Why abandon a belief merely because it ceases to be true? Cling to it long enough and... it will turn true again, for so it goes. Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.
The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.
Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us.

Stay is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary.
True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian... and most of all, his family ought to know.
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.
The Christian is not one who has gone all the way with Christ. None of us has. The Christian is one who has found the right road.
Yes, we must ever be friends; and of all who offer you friendship Let me be ever the first, the truest, the nearest and dearest!
Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.
Love gives itself; it is not bought.
Every man must patiently bide his time. He must wait -- not in listless idleness but in constant, steady, cheerful endeavors, always willing and fulfilling and accomplishing his task, that when the occasion comes he may be equal to the occasion.
It takes less time to do a thing right than to explain why you did it wrong.

I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For so swiftly it flew, the sight Could not follow it in its flight. I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, who has sight so keen and strong That it can follow the flight of song? Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroken; And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
