“One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters.”
George Herbert Palmer

“a loss unconsidered at the time. But to decide for anything is to decide against a multitude of other things. Taking is still more largely leaving. The full extent of this negative decision often escapes our notice, and through the very fact of choosing a good we blindly neglect a best.”
George Herbert Palmer, The Nature of Goodness

“Would you reach the infinite? Then enter into finite things, working out all that they contain.”
