...thou desire the love of God and man, be humble; for the proud heart, as it loves none but itself, so it is beloved of none but by itself; the voice of humility is God's music, and the silence of humility is God's rhetoric. Humility enforces where neither virtue nor strength can prevail nor reason.--QUARLES.
The fullest and best ears of corn hang lowest toward the ground. --BISHOP REYNOLDS.
If thou wouldst find much favor and peace with God and man, be very low in thine own eyes;Forgive thyself little, and others much.--LEIGHTON.

HURRY.--No two things differ more than hurry and despatch. Hurry is the mark of a weak mind, despatch of a strong one.

Leighton, Robert
