The dead of midnight is the noon of thought.
But every act in consequence of our faith, strengthens faith.
We neither laugh alone, nor weep alone, why then should we pray alone?
The most characteristic mark of a great mind is to choose some one important object, and pursue it for life.
The well taught philosophic mind To all compassion gives; Casts round the world an equal eye, And feels for all that lives.
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; when man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
