Some suggestions for you :

Education does not mean teaching people what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.

There are no bad pictures; that's just how your face looks sometimes.

A woman is the only thing I am afraid of that I know will not hurt me.

Too big to cry too young to laugh...

If a man had more than one life, I think a little hanging would not hurt this one; but after he is once dead, we cannot bring him back, no matter how sorry we may be; so the boy shall be pardoned.

You can't make a weak man strong by making a strong man weak.

My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.

Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence built.

I fear you do not fully comprehend the danger of abridging the liberties of the people. Nothing but the very sternest necessity can ever justify it.

Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States - old as well as new - North as well as South.

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

A farce or comedy is best played; a tragedy is best read at home.

I have been too familiar with disappointments to be very much chagrined.

The better part of one's life consists of his friendships.
