#Quote
1 A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.
2 Who ever hears of fat men heading a riot, or herding together in turbulent mobs?--No--no, 'tis your lean, hungry men who are continually worrying society, and setting the whole community by the ears.
3 Whenever a man's friends begin to compliment him about looking young, he may be sure that they think he is growing old.
4 There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse; as I have found in traveling in a stage-coach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position and be bruised in a new place.
5 I've had it with you and your emotional constipation!
6 Great minds have purposes; little minds have wishes. Little minds are subdued by misfortunes; great minds rise above them.
7 They who drink beer will think beer.
8 A sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.
