Oliver Goldsmith

You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.

Propertius

Let no one be willing to speak ill of the absent.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Lindsey Joy Holland

We are either building up or tearing down in everything we do. Are you on the construction gang, or on the wrecking crew?

Lisa Brenninkmeyer

May I be magnanimous with good opinions instead of being characterized by a critical spirit. Everyone I meet is fighting some kind of a battle. Help me to be gentle with the people placed in my path – in my actions, words, and attitudes.

Lottie Pratt Brown

You don’t have to tell how you live each day;
You don’t have to say if you work or you play;
A tried, true barometer serves in the place–
However you live, it will show in your face.

The false, the deceit that you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside where it first got a start;
For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace–
What you wear in your heart, you wear in your face.

If your life is selfless, if for others you live,
For not what you get, but how much you can give;
If you live close to God in his infinite grace–
You don’t have to tell it, it shows in your face.
