PITH AND POINT.
~ He is young
enough who has health, and he is rich enough
who has no debts.
~ Blessings are
usually celibates. Troubles marry and replenish
the earth. - Burlington Free Press.
~ Men are responsible
for sin, but not for infirmity. Infirmities
are the mistakes which men make on their
way to knowledge. - Beecher.
~ There are
no persons more solicitous about the preservation
of rank than those who have no rank at
~ Only by labor
can thought be made healthy, and only by
thought can labor be made happy, and the
two can not be separated with impunity.
~ Don't be afraid
of wild boys and girls; they often grow up
to be the very best men and women. Wildness
is not viciousness. - Herbert Spencer.
~ Right actions
for the future are the best explanations
or apologies for wrong ones in the past;
the best, evidence of regret for them that
we can offer or the world receive. - Edwards.
~ He who gives
another an opportunity to do good by soliciting
from him some act of goodness, has really
done a favor to the latter which the latter
may turn to his own benefit by doing the
good act. - N.Y. Independent.
~ Mental ability
and acquirement, physical strength, personal
capability, pecuniary possession - whatever
it is, we do well to keep something in hand
- something not squandered abroad and strewn
on the surface. - Once a Week.
~ The man who
is busy working doesn't have time to read
up on the subject of capital and labor, and
the man who puts in his time reading on that
subject doesn't have time to work. That's
why no one reaches a complete comprehension
of the difficulty - Merchant Trader.
~ If a fool knows
a secret, he tells it because he is a fool;
if a knave knows one, he tells it whenever
it is in his interest to tell it. But women
and young men are very apt to tell what secrets
they know from the vanity of having been
trusted. Trust none of these whenever you
can help it. - Chesterfield.
~ Women famed
for their valor, their skill in politics
or their learning, leave the duties of their
own sex in order to invade the privileges
of ours. I can no more pardon a fair one
for endeavoring t wield the club of Hercules
than I could him for endeavoring to twirl
her distaff. - Goldsmith.
~ Some people
speak as if hypocrites were confined to religion,
but they are everywhere; people pretending
to wealth when they have not a sixpence,
assuming knowledge of which they are ignorant,
shamming a culture they are far removed from,
adopting opinions they do not hold. - Rev. Albert Goodrich
~ A teacher in
one of the city schools a few days ago was
trying to instill patriotism into the minds
of a class of small girls. Among other questions
asked was: "Who was the father of his country?"
There was a short pause, and a little hand
went up. "Well, who was he, Jennie?" "Please,
miss, I think God." - Indianapolis News.
~ It has always
been the practice of mankind to judge of
actions by the event. The same events, conducted
in the sme manner, but terminated by different
success, produce different judgements; they
who attain their wishes never want celebrators
of their wisdom and their virtue; and they
that miscarry are quickly discovered to have
been defective not only in mental, but in
moral qualities. - N.Y. Ledger.
