 (Heb.11:4)
 
Henry Ward BeecherDied8th March 1887
 
Every man should keep a fair-sized cemetery in which to bury the faults of his friends.
 
D
o not burn the barn to get rid of the rats.
 
I
never knew how to worship until
I
knew how to love.
 
I
t's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much betterat the top.
 
ove cannot endure indifference.
I
t needs to be wanted.
ike alamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or itsflame burns low.
 
I
can forgive, but
I
cannot forget, is only another way of saying,
I
 will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note -torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shownagainst one.
 
 
 
he most important thing a father can do for his children is tolove their mother.
 
D
o not scold people for not attending meetings.
I
do not believethat any amount of whips or of skill could drive a swarm of beesinto a field where there were not a dozen flowers.
hey won·t go!And to get them into a field where there are a thousand flowers,there is no need for whips or driving.
 
here is no such thing as white lies; a lie is as black as a coalpit,and twice as foul.
 
A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks hegets as much as he deserves.
 
S
ink the Bible to the bottom of the ocean, and still man'sobligations to God would be unchanged. He would have the samepath to tread, only his lamp and guide would be gone; the samevoyage to make, but his chart and compass would be overboard!
 
S
ome men always seem to confess in a general way ² never thespecial sins that his neighbors see in him, but always thedoctrine of sin, and not the practice.
 
W
e should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
 
he true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly givenit, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and neverpersist in trying to set people right.

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know. Ralph Waldo Emerson US essayist & poet (1803 - 1882) and yet, if a person has taken the trouble to distill wisdom into a simple verse, who am I to show disdain. The greatest quote of this page is, I think, the last, to not just read a quote, but to meditate on it's deeper meaning. Thank you
