May the sparks of love brighten into a flame. May we kiss whom we please and please whom we kiss. Here is to Love in every breast, liberty in every heart, and learning in every head.
To The three F's: Friendship, Feeling, and Fidelity; Friendship without interest, Feeling for the depressed, Fidelity to truth.
May Love and Reason be friends, and Beauty and Prudence marry. May those who escape the quick sands of jealousy never find themselves on the shoals of indifference.
In the voyage of life, may Contentment be our fellow passenger. May we be happy, and our enemies know it. May our counsels be wise, and our commerce increase, and may we ever experience the blessings of peace.
