Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion.

34.
Character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

How difficult it is to save the bark of reputation from the rocks of ignorance.
Petrarch, Francesco

Francis, Clarence

49.
We know but a few men, a great many coats and breeches.
Thoreau, Henry David
