I have found power in the mysteries of thought.
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

A bad beginning makes a bad ending.
A second wife is hateful to the children of the first; a viper is not more hateful.
A sweet thing, for whatever time, to revisit in dreams the dear dad we have lost.
