Age
Engrave this Quote Being over seventy is like being engaged in a war. All our friends are going or gone and we survive amongst the dead and the dying as on a battlefield.

Death
Engrave this Quote If I had my life over again I should form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practice, as it were, the remembrance of death. There is no other practice which so intensifies life. Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life. Without an ever-present sense of death life is insipid. You might as well live on the whites of eggs.

Education
Engrave this Quote To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education, I call it intrusion.

Potential
Engrave this Quote One's prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must then live it to the full.

Religion
Engrave this Quote If you're going to do a thing, you should do it thoroughly. If you're going to be a Christian, you may as well be a Catholic.

Engrave this Quote I wouldn't take the Pope too seriously. He's a Pole first, a pope second, and maybe a Christian third.
