"We never know the love of a parent
till we become parents ourselves."

Henry Ward Beecher

"Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard
than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself."

Henry Ward Beecher

"Pride slays thanksgiving,
but a humble mind is the soil out of which
thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom
a grateful man, for he never thinks
he gets as much as he deserves."

Henry Ward Beecher

"Love cannot endure indifference.
It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp,
it needs to be fed out of the oil
of another's heart, or its flame burns low."

Henry Ward Beecher

"We sleep, but the loom of life never stops,
and the pattern which was weaving when the sun
went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning."

Henry Ward Beecher
