We really begin to amount to something
to men and to God
When we are careful to do a kindness
And careless about who gets the credit
We first make our habits and then
our habits make us.
Habits are at first cobwebs, then
Hardening of the heart
ages people more quickly
Than hardening of the arteries.
Nothing is opened more by mistake
than the mouth.
Silence is one of the great arts
Brevity is the soul of wit and even wit
is a burden when it talks too long.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life.
