John D. Rockefeller, Sr
The secret to success is to do common things uncommonly well.
Like a morning dream, life becomes more and more bright the longer we live, and the reason of everything appears more clear. What has puzzled us before seems less mysterious, and the crooked paths look straighter as we approach the end.
Music is moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
The conscience of children is formed by the influences that surround them; their notions of good and evil are the result of the moral atmosphere they breathe.
Sorrows are like thunderclouds, in the distance they look black, over our heads scarcely gray.
You prove your worth with your actions, not with your mouth.
God is an unutterable sigh, planted in the depths of the soul.
The darkness of death is like the evening twilight; it makes all objects appear more lovely to the dying.
