But let the man sincerely believe that seed planted without ploughing is as good as with, that January is as favorable for seed sowing as April, and that cockle seed will produce as good a harvest as wheat, and will it make no difference? Henry Ward Beecher

All human affairs follow nature's great analogue, the growth of vegetation. There are three periods of growth in every plant. The first, and slowest, is the invisible growth by the root; the second and much accelerated is the visible growth by the stem; but when root and stem have gathered their forces, there comes the third period, in which the plant quickly flashes into blossom and rushes into fruit. Henry Ward Beecher

If one asks me the meaning of our flag, I say to him: It means all that the Constitution of our people, organizing for justice, for liberty, and for happiness, meant.

That it meant, that it means, and, by the blessing of God, that it shall mean to the end of time! Henry Ward Beecher

These forethinkings are meant, not to make us discontented with life, but to bring us back with more strength, and a nobler purpose in living. Henry Ward Beecher
