This is the first line of a lovely poem titled LOVE. I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. Roy Croft.*
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever does.
Thou art to me a delicious torment.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.
I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
A kiss is a lovely trick, designed by nature, to stop words when speech becomes superfluous.
Where does the family start? It starts with a young man falling in love with a girl—no superior alternative has yet been found.
It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
I have learned not to worry about love, but to honor its coming with all my heart.
In honor of Abraham Lincoln
Nobody has ever expected me to be president. In my poor, lean lank face nobody has ever seen that any cabbages were sprouting.
I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors, and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.
Beware of rashness, but with energy and sleepless vigilance go forward and give us victories.
Let us have faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.
It is not best to swap horses while crossing the river.
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
In honor of George Washington
Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.
Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience.
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
