HOW fair a lot to fill
Is left to each man still.
GENTLENESS and cheerfulness, these come before all morality; they are the perfect duties. . . . If your morals make you dreary, depend upon it, they are wrong. I do not say, “Give them up,” for they may be all you have; but conceal them, like a vice, lest they should spoil the lives of better and simpler people.
Robert Louis Stevenson
WE are never more discontented with others than when we are discontented with ourselves. The consciousness of wrong-doing makes us irritable, and our heart in its cunning quarrels with what is outside it, in order that it may deepen the clamour within.
Henri F. Amiel
UNHOLY tempers are always unhappy tempers.
