Friends
Engrave this Quote The most violent friendships soonest wear themselves out.

-William Hazlitt
Engrave this Quote There are few things in which we deceive ourselves more than in the esteem we profess to entertain for our friends. It is little better than a piece of quackery. The truth is, we think of them as we please --that is, as they please or displease us.

-William Hazlitt
Engrave this Quote There are no rules for friendship. It must be left to itself. We cannot force it any more than love.

-William Hazlitt
Engrave this Quote There are persons who cannot make friends. Who are they? Those who cannot be friends. It is not the want of understanding or good nature, of entertaining or useful qualities, that you complain of: on the contrary, they have probably many points of attraction; but they have one that neutralizes all these --they care nothing about you, and are neither the better nor worse for what you think of them. They manifest no joy at your approach; and when you leave them, it is with a feeling that they can do just as well without you. This is not sullenness, nor indifference, nor absence of mind; but they are intent solely on their own thoughts, and you are merely one of the subjects they exercise them upon. They live in society as in a solitude.

Genius
Engrave this Quote The definition of genius is that it acts unconsciously; and those who have produced immortal works, have done so without knowing how or why. The greatest power operates unseen.

Goodness
Engrave this Quote If goodness were only a theory, it were a pity it should be lost to the world. There are a number of things, the idea of which is a clear gain to the mind. Let people, for instance, rail at friendship, genius, freedom, as long as they will --the very names of these despised qualities are better than anything else that could be substituted for them, and embalm even the most envenomed satire against them.

Greatness & Great Things
Engrave this Quote No man is truly great who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history.

Help
Engrave this Quote We are all of us, more or less, the slaves of opinion.

Honesty
Engrave this Quote The confession of our failings is a thankless office. It savors less of sincerity or modesty than of ostentation. It seems as if we thought our weaknesses as good as other people's virtues.

Hope
Engrave this Quote Hope is the best possession. None are completely wretched but those who are without hope. Few are reduced so low as that.

Humility
Engrave this Quote Modesty is the lowest of the virtues, and is a real confession of the deficiency it indicates. He who undervalues himself is justly undervalued by others.

Engrave this Quote Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps, for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they ought to be.

Hurt, Injury
Engrave this Quote An honest man speaks the truth, though it may give offence; a vain man, in order that it may.

Hypocrisy
Engrave this Quote The only vice which cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.

Engrave this Quote A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make a dupe of himself too, if he could.

Engrave this Quote A nickname is the heaviest stone that the devil can throw at a man. It is a bugbear to the imagination, and, though we do not believe in it, it still haunts our apprehensions.
