Full Points.

BY SAM L. LEFFINGWELL.
A “kicker” is not necessarily an enemy.
Exchange which is not equitable is robbery.

Even one's nearest friend may go wrong some time.

If you must use compliment, be sure you use truth.

To be wicked is not much worse than to be indiscreet.

Tyranny is of itself anarchy, if not treason to the populace.

What is the difference between anarchy and judicial injunction?

Insured equivalence would soften many of the suffering ills of life.

It is not always safe to hastily give assent to those who talk over-much.

A man should be able himself to stand erect, not be kept erect by others.

That government is the best which respects most of all the freedom of the governed.

Happy is that man who has in him nothing servile, nor affected, nothing worthy of blame, nothing which seeks a hiding place.

Lying even in indifferent things weakens the understanding, and lying maliciously is as great a moral offense as a man can be guilty of.

It is not every man who could find his life's record hung up where all could see it and not himself feel the ignominy of its exposure.

It was one of the apostles who said that the world was full of envious, jealous and malignant people, and a man might be well content to get out of it.

A wise philosopher it was who said that the only thing we can be robbed of is the present. The past is lost; the future we know not of. We can not be robbed of that which we have not.

Some men write without the consciousness of an honest purpose in life, without regard to a knowledge of right or wrong-only troubling themselves about what their intimates may think or say.

That man does not seek nor desire truth who will not change when he is convinced that he does not think and act right. There is no injury in truth; but much to him who abides in error and ignorance.

There is nothing profitable or of lasting value in anything that shall compel a man to break his promise, to lose his self-respect, to act the hypocrite, to practice anything which needs walls and curtains.

It is a waste of energy to exert oneself only for the applause of others. Approbation is a serious question of value. The clapping of hands, like the clapping of tongues, is of fame won and lost in a breath.

There is great deception in those who practice the infliction of long-drawn sentences pretending to inform and enlighten, but which, when subjected to purposes of digestion, are found to be the result of mere flatulency:

Some men seeking fame reach only notoriety. After the most exalted fame, finally comes oblivion. After notoriety comes what? Life is a mere sojourn. We embark, make the voyage, long or short, come to the shore-get out.

A man may rave through column after column of pot-house wit and back-alley humor, to "split the ears of the groundlings,” and yet show a natural weakness of appreciation of the ethic and a total ignorance of what is politic.

A good man for one to emulate is he who can express approbation without noisy display and possess much of knowledge without ostentation. There is much room for the toleration of ignorant persons and those who form opinions without consideration.
