Famous Quotes:

“What you are while you are a girl, you will be when you become a woman.”

“Every woman can be a lady, who conducts herself in a lady-like manner. And the true idea of a lady is, a strict propriety of conduct in all occasions. One may, therefore, be a lady as well in the kitchen as in the parlor.”

” Young folks think old folks are fools ; but old folks know young folks are fools.”

“more truth than poetry.”

“I wonder how long it has been growing”

” It is no matter how I behave now ; I shall do differently when I am a Jady.”

” The formation of manners in youth.”

” Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations ; ”

” Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.”

“How shall I honor my parents ”

“My little rule is this : NEVER BE CROSS. ”

” Praying will make thee leave sinning, and sinning will make thee leave praying.”

If your heart is not right with God, then it is wrong; and you are to blame for having it wrong.

You can do nothing well with-out God’s blessing ; and you cannot expect his blessing without asking for it

You must not do your own ways, nor find your own pleasure.

A habit is what has become easy and natural by frequent repetition.

Habits are both bad and good; and a habit is a very good or a very bad thing, as it is good or bad.


The opposite of this habit is QUIETNESS.

Rudeness manifestsitself both in speech and behavior.
