GOUGH, John B. Quotes
(1817-1886), American temperance lecturer
Every moderate drinker could abandon the intoxicating cup, if he would; every inebriate would if he could.
Eloquence is the transference of thought and emotion from one heart to another, no matter how it is done.
If you want to succeed in the world you must make your own opportunities as you go on. The man who waits for some seventh wave to toss him on dry land will find that the seventh wave is a long time a coming. You can commit no greater folly than to sit by the road side until some one comes along and invites you to ride with him to wealth or influence.
Temperance is the lawful gratification of a natural and healthy appetite.
