To be honest, as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand.
The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world, is to be in reality what we would appear to be; and if we observe, we shall find, that all human virtues increase and strengthen themselves by the practice and experience of them.
God looks only to the pure, not to the full hands.
I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.
Money dishonestly acquired is never worth its cost, while a good conscience never costs as much as its worth.
No legacy is so rich as honesty.
Honest policy is a good friend, both to our safety and to our usefulness. The serpent's head may well become a good christian's body, especiallyif it have a dove's eye in it.
