  4. Emeasoba George:

    Professing God's blessing is better than saying thanks to anyone. That is to say, it is more advantageous to tell someone God bless him or her rather than to tell him or her thank you.

  5. William Graham Sumner:

    Property left to a child may soon be lost but the inheritance of virtue--a good name an unblemished reputation--will abide forever. If those who are toiling for wealth to leave their children, would but take half the pains to secure for them virtuous habits, how much more serviceable would they be. The largest property may be wrested from a child, but virtue will stand by him to the last.
