We can never treat a fellow-creature ill, without offending
the gracious Creator and Father of all.
A kind word, nay, even a kind look often affords
comfort to the afflicted.
Every desire of the heart, every secret thought is

He that cares only for himself, has but few pleasures;
and those few are of the lowest order.
We may escape the censure of others, when we do

our own mind.
Partiality often hides from us our own faults; we see

Never sport with pain and distress in any of your amuse-

cruelty.
Vicious pursuits may yield a few scattered pleasures;
but piety and virtue will make our whole life happy.
Fancy paints pleasures at a distance with beautiful
colours; but possession often takes away their beauty.
We should accustom ourselves to bear small injuries
patiently; we shall then be better able to support great
ones.

own imperfections, be patient and humble.
