A woman who wants a charitable heart wants a pure mind.
Keep clear of personalities in conversation. Talk of things, objects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with persons. Do not needlessly report ill of others. As far as possible, dwell on the good side of human beings. There are family boards where a constant process of depreciating, assigning motives, and cutting up character goes forward. They are not pleasant places. One who is healthy does not wish to dine at a dissecting table. There is evil enough in man, God knows. But it is not the mission of every young man and woman to detail and report it all. Keep the atmosphere as pure as possible, and fragrant with gentleness and charity.

Good-fellowship, unflagging, is the prime requisite for success in our society, and the man or woman who smiles only for reasons of humor or pleasure is a deviate.
No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover that there is a nice man who wishes she were not.
To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia - to mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god or an ordinary young woman for a goddess.
There is no such thing as an old woman. Any woman of any age, if she loves, if she is good, gives a man a sense of the infinite.

Memory is a crazy woman that hoards colored rags and throws away food.
No woman ever hates a man for being in love with her, but many a woman hates a man for being a friend to her.
A saintly colored woman who was greatly loved in her community was asked how she made and kept so many friends. She replied, "I stop and taste my words before I let them pass my teeth."
How unhappy the woman who is in love and virtuous at the same time!
