The purpose of life is a life of purpose
It is better to be defeated on principle than to win on lies
Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value
It is better to deserve honours and not have them than to have them and not deserve them
Act well your part, there all the honour lies
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance
How poor are they that have not patience!
What wound did ever heal but by degrees!
And finally, a prayer from one of the founding fathers of the United States, Thomas Jefferson:
God grant that men of principle be our principal men!
