204 페이지 - As the strength of the body lies chiefly in being able to endure hardships, so also does that of the mind. And the great principle and foundation of all virtue and worth is placed in this, that a man is able to deny himself his own desires, cross his own inclinations, and purely follow what reason directs as best, though the appetite lean the other way.
245 페이지 - When a rich man is fallen, he hath many helpers: he speaketh things not to be spoken, and yet men justify him : the poor man slipped, and yet they rebuked him too; he spake wisely, and could have no place. When a rich man speaketh, every man holdeth his tongue, and look, what he saith, they extol it to the clouds : but if the poor man speak, they say, What fellow is this?

There are few individuals whose education has been conducted in every respect with attention and judgment. Almost every man of reflection is conscious, when he arrives at maturity, of many defects in his mental powers ; and of many inconvenient habits, which might have been prevented or remedied in his infancy or youth. Such a consciousness is the first...
90 페이지 - Gratifications of the will without the consequent expected pleasure, disappointments of it without the consequent expected pain, are here particularly useful to us. And it is by this, amongst other means, that the human will is brought to a conformity with the Divine, which is the only radical cure for all our evils and disappointments, and the only earnest medium for obtaining everlasting happiness.
259 페이지 - Providence to contribute to its realization. Let her reflect, how much the proper education of one single family may eventually contribute towards it ; and that while the fruits of her labours are a rich harvest of peace, happiness, and virtue, which may descend through generations yet unborn, she will herself enjoy a glorious and eternal reward. It is because they are hopeless of being able to stem the torrent by individual exertion, that individuals permit themselves to be carried down by the stream...
