Sayfa 98 - If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeams — the more they are condensed the deeper they burn.
Sayfa 128 - The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it: so fine that we are often on the line and do not know it.

Sayfa 140 - Justice, sir, is the great interest of man on earth. It is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized nations together.
Sayfa 134 - As the tide goes clear out, so it comes clear in. In business, sometimes, prospects may seem darkest when really they are on the turn.

Sayfa 140 - Some men, like pictures, are fitter for a corner than a full light ; and I believe such as have a natural bent to solitude are like waters, which may be forced into fountains, and exalted to a great height, may make a much nobler figure, and a much louder noise, but after all run more smoothly, equally, and plentifully, in their own natural course upon the ground.
Sayfa 130 - There are three things it takes a strong man to hold ; a young warrior, a wild horse, and a handsome squaw.
