No man can do right unless he is good, wise, and strong. What wonder we fail?
Nothing mere completely baffles one who is full of trick and duplicity, than straightforward and simple integrity in another.
A straight line is the shortest in morals as in mathematics.
In all things preserve integrity, and the consciousness of thine own uprightness will alleviate the toil of business, soften the hardness of ill-success and disappointment, and give thee an humble confidence before God when the ingratitude of men, or the iniquity of the times may rob thee of other reward.
The great high-road of human welfare lies along the highway of steadfast well-doing, and they who are the most persistent, and work in the truest spirit, will invariably be the most successful.
If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. Men will believe what they see. Let them see.
The man who is so conscious of the rectitude of his intentions as to be willing to open his bosom to the inspection of the world, is in possession of one of the strongest pillars of a decided character. The course of such a man win be firm and steady, because he has nothing to fear from the world, and is sure of the approbation and support of Heaven.
