Engrave this Quote Angels may be very excellent sort of folk in their own way, but we, poor mortals in our present state, would probably find them precious slow company.

Baby, Babies
Engrave this Quote If you desire to drain to the dregs the fullest cup of scorn and hatred that a fellow human being can pour out for you, let a young mother hear you call dear baby it.

Fish, Fishing
Engrave this Quote Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing; but this is a mistake. Mere bald fabrication is useless; the veriest tyro can manage that. It is in the circumstantial detail, the embellishing touches of probability, the general air of scrupulous -- almost of pedantic -- veracity, that the experienced angler is seen.

Help
Engrave this Quote We are so bound together that no man can labor for himself alone. Each blow he strikes in his own behalf helps to mold the universe.

Home

Love
Engrave this Quote Nothing is more beautiful than the love that has weathered the storms of life. The love of the young for the young, that is the beginning of life. But the love of the old for the old, that is the beginning of things longer.

Perfection
Engrave this Quote It is in our faults and failings, not in our virtues, that we touch each other, and find sympathy. It is in our follies that we are one.

Poverty
Engrave this Quote It is easy enough to say that poverty is no crime. No; if it were men wouldn't be ashamed of it. It is a blunder, though, and is punished as such. A poor man is despised the whole world over.

Sadness
Engrave this Quote I can see the humorous side of things and enjoy the fun when it comes; but look where I will, there seems to me always more sadness than joy in life.

Shyness
Engrave this Quote The shy man does have some slight revenge upon society for the torture it inflicts upon him. He is able, to a certain extent, to communicate his misery. He frightens other people as much as they frighten him. He acts like a damper upon the whole room, and the most jovial spirits become, in his presence, depressed and nervous.

Smoking
Engrave this Quote I attribute the quarrelsome nature of the Middle Ages young men entirely to the want of the soothing weed.

Work
Engrave this Quote I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me; the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.
