Henry Ward Beecher – He who who drives birds from his garden

Share this quote:
Henry Ward BeecherWe charge every man with positive dishonesty who drives birds from his garden in fruit-time. The fruit is theirs as well as yours. They took care of it as much as you did. If they had not eaten egg, worm, and bug, your fruit would have been pierced and ruined. They only come for wages. No honest man will cheat a bird of his spring and summer’s work.

Henry Ward Beecher – The quiet peace of knitting

Share this quote:
Henry Ward BeecherWho ever saw a person other than quiet and peaceful that knits? If anger breaks out, the knitting is laid aside. When the needles begin again, you may be sure that it is all right within.

Henry Ward Beecher – Crime never pays its own way

Share this quote:
Henry Ward BeecherJails are built out of honest men’s earnings. Courts are supported from peaceful men’s property. Penitentiaries are built by the toil of virtue. Crime never pays its own way. Vice has no hands to work, no head to calculate. Its whole faculty is to corrupt and to waste; and good men, directly or indirectly, foot the bill.

Henry Ward Beecher – The heart makes us rich

Share this quote:
Henry Ward BeecherNo man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.
