Oh, how great peace and quietness would he possess who should cut off all vain anxiety and place all his confidence in God.
Great tranquility of heart is his who cares for neither praise nor blame.
Oh, how swiftly the glory of the world passes away!
A humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
Purity and simplicity are the two wings with which man soars above the earth and all temporary nature.
I would far rather feel remorse than know how to define it.
