Love casts out fear, and gratitude can conquer pride.
If you have a good many little gifts and virtues, there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.
Now if there is anything mortifying to our feelings when we are young, it is to be told that little children shouldn't ask questions, and to be bidden to 'run away, dear' is still more trying to us.
Don't let the sun go down upon your anger. Forgive each other, help each other, and begin again tomorrow.
Evil thoughts and feelings always grow strong and take possession of you unless cast out at once.
Watch and pray, never get tired of trying, and never think it is impossible to conquer your faults.
If you've made a big mistake, remember that day, and resolve with all your soul that you will never know another like it.

We all have our temptations, some far greater than yours, and it often takes us all our lives to conquer them. You must keep watch over your 'bosom enemy', or it may sadden, if not spoil your life. Try with heart and soul to master it, before it brings you greater sorrow and regret than you may have known already. If someone else is struggling, help them, remind them, and keep them from flying out.
The patience and the humility of a face you love well is a better lesson than the wisest lecture, the sharpest reproof. You feel comforted at once by the sympathy and confidence given you. The knowledge that someone has a fault like yours, and tries to mend it, makes your own easier to bear and strengthens your resolution to cure it.
Check the hasty words that rise to your lips, and when you feel that they mean to break out against your will, just go away for a minute, and give yourself a little shake.
Never lose patience, never doubt or complain, but always hope and work and wait so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before you.
Love makes it easy to be good.
Real flowers are the prettiest ornament for a young girl.
Poor folks shouldn't rig.

The more one gets, the more one wants.
Doing kind acts finishes your despondency.
Don't let your friends treat you like a dress-up doll in order to be prettier. Be sensible and wear your own things, then you should not feel uncomfortable or ashamed of yourself.
Don't let people make a fool of you because they flatter you and say you are a beauty.
Motherly eyes are quick to see any change in children's faces.
Forget all the bad and remember only the good. Don't be sentimental or dissatisfied.
Learn to know and value the praise which is worth having, and to excite the admiration of excellent people by being modest as well as pretty.

What you should want for yourself is to be beautiful, accomplished, and good. To be admired, loved, and respected. To have a happy youth, to be well and wisely married, and to lead a useful, pleasant life, with as little care and sorrow to try you as life sees fit to send.
To be loved and chosen by a good man (or woman) is one of the best and sweetest things which can happen to a woman. It is natural to think of it, right to hope and wait for it, and wise to prepare for it, so that when the happy time comes, you may feel ready for the duties and worthy of the joy.
Better be happy old maids than unhappy wives or unmaidenly girls, running about to find husbands.
It's much better to be a poor man's wife, if you are happy, beloved, contented, than a queen on a throne, without self-respect and peace.
Money is a needful and precious thing, and when well used, a noble thing, but never think it is the first or only prize to strive for.
Poverty seldom daunts a sincere lover. Some of the best and most honored women were poor girls, but so love-worthy that they were not allowed to be old maids. Leave these things to time.
Remember: a loving mother is always ready to be your confidant, a loving father to be your friend, and both your parents hope and trust that you will be the pride and comfort of their lives.
Make your home with your parents happy, so that you may be fit for a home of your own, if it is offered you, and contented with them if it is not.
