James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Heaven is in thy faith; happiness in thy heart.  1
  Honourable (Ehrlich) is a word of high rank, and implies much more than most people attach to it.  2
  In deinem Glauben ist dein Himmel, / In deinem Herzen ist dein Glück—In thy faith is thy heaven, in thy heart thy happiness.  3
  Nichts stirbt, was wirklich gut und göttlich war—Nothing that was really good and godlike dies.  4
  Nur dem Fröhlichen blüht der Baum des Lebens, / Dem Unschuldigen rinnt der Born der Jugend / Auch noch im Alter—Only for the cheerful does the tree of life blossom, for the innocent the well-spring of youth keeps still flowing, even in old age.  5
  Nur wer vor Gott sich fühlet klein / Kann vor den Menschen mächtig sein—He only who feels himself little in the eye of God can hope to be mighty in the eyes of men.  6
