Modestly is always, and justly, supposed to be a concomitant of merit; and every appearance of it is winning and prepossessing.
The ingratitude of the world, can never deprive us of the conscious happiness of having acted with humanity ourselves.
Modesty seldom resides in a breast that is not enriched with nobler virtues.
Friendship’s dear ties for generous souls were made,
When they relax, black woes our peace invade!
Friendship from every ill can life defend,
Our guardian angel’s but a faithful Friend.
