Excerpt

A young face and an old heart are sorry companions, but an old face and a young heart are sorrier still.

* * * * *

What people will 'say' is the bugbear of small minds.

* * * * *

Love would cease to exist were it not for the gift of idealizing.

* * * * *

A fly is but a small thing, yet it can disturb the greatest philosopher.

* * * * *

Is a new soul created at every birth, or are we merely corpses warmed over?

* * * * *

Kind words and a sympathetic handclasp have done more to reclaim lost souls than all the tracts ever published.

* * * * *

A minute is a short duration of time, yet in that interval one may experience the whole gamut of human emotions.
