John Christian Bovee
Fame - a few words upon a tombstone, and the truth of those not to be depended on.
Doubt whom you will, but never yourself.
In one important respect a man is fortunate in being poor. His responsibility to God is so much the less.
The grandest of all laws is the law of progressive development. Under it, in the wide sweep of things, men grow wiser as they grow older, and societies better.
The busiest of living agents are certain dead men's thoughts; they are forever influencing the opinions and destinies of men.
