Side 81 - I do the very best I know how — the very best I can ; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
Side 86 - To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion ; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich...
Side 5 - READING without purpose is sauntering, not exercise. More is got from one book on which the thought settles for a definite end in knowledge, than from libraries skimmed over by a wandering eye. A cottage flower gives honey to the bee, a king's garden none to the butterfly.

Side 35 - If put to a pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must vilify, condemn and eternally disparage, why, resign your position, and when you are outside, damn to your heart's content.
Side 3 - How to make good; or, Winning your largest success; a business man's talks on personal proficiency and commercial character-building.
