We see things as we are, not as they are.

Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance
You and I do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.
He who does not expect a million readers should not write a line.
Life consists in what a person is thinking of all day.
The idol is the measure of the worshipper.
However things may seem, no evil thing is success and no good thing is failure.
Colleges don't make fools, they only develop them.
Difficulties are things that show a person what they are.
Never excuse, never explain, never complain.
Take me to you, imprison me, for I, except you enthrall me, never shall be free, nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.

By the grace of God, I'll be that man.
Where one man reads the Bible, a hundred read you and me.
Faith has to do with things that are not seen, and hope with things that are not in hand.
Faith is trust in what the spirit learned eons ago.
Faith must trample under foot all reason, sense, and understanding.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers eyes. Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall and a preserving sweet.
To me, the sea is like a person -- like a child that I've known a long time. It sounds crazy, I know, but when I swim in the sea I talk to it. I never feel alone when I'm out there.
Death is a Dialogue between, the Spirit and the Dust.
Good God! how often are we to die before we go quite off this stage? In every friend we lose a part of ourselves, and the best part.

Prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.
There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.
The desire is thy prayers; and if thy desire is without ceasing, thy prayer will also be without ceasing. The continuance of your longing is the continuance of your prayer.
The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible -- and achieve it, generation after generation.
Things are beautiful if you love them.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
