“Frequent and loud laughter is the characteristic of folly and ill manners.”
“Man is more himself, man is more manlike, when joy is the fundamental thing in him, and grief the superficial.”
“Conscious virtue is the only solid foundation of all happiness; for riches, power, rank, or whatever, in the common acceptation ofthe word, is supposed to constitute happiness, will never quiet, much less cure, the inward pangs of guilt.”
