Sayings by J. G. Holland
1. The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
2. The person who does not know how to live while they are making a living is a poorer person after their wealth is won than when they started.
3. There is no royal road to anything, one thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
4. The choicest thing this world has for a man is affection.
5. God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.
