On What We Are

   Charm strikes the sight, but merit wins the soul. 


   How far that little candle throws his beams!  So shines a good 
   deed in a naughty world. 


   Spectators see better than actors. 

                                                 Persian Proverb

   What we are speaks so loud people can't hear what we say.

   It never occurs to fools that merit and good fortune are 
   closely united. 


   A man shows his character by what he laughs at. 

                                                  German Proverb

   He who reigns within himself, and rules passions, desires, and 
   fears, is more than a king. 


   Good example is half a sermon. 


   A man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds. 


   Never esteem anything of advantage to thee that shall make thee 
   break thy word or lose thy self-respect. 
                                                 Marcus Aurelius

   Good nature, like a bee, collects honey from every herb.  Ill 
   nature, like a spider, sucks poison from the sweetest flower. 


   Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power. 


   What one does, one becomes. 

                                    Spanish Proverb 

   He who plants thorns must never expect to gather roses. 

                                                  Arabian Proverb

   Well done is better than well said. 


   Not the cry, but the flight of the wild duck, leads the flock 
   to fly and follow. 

                                                  Chinese Proverb 

   The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it. 


   The man who lives close to God never is heard bragging about 
   his own holiness.

   As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
