„Even happiness itself may become habitual. There is a habit of looking at the bright side of things, and also of looking at the dark side.“

—  Samuel Smiles
Self-Help; with Illustrations of Character and Conduct (1859), Context: Even happiness itself may become habitual. There is a habit of looking at the bright side of things, and also of looking at the dark side. Dr. Johnson has said that the habit of looking at the best side of a thing is worth more to a man than a thousand pounds a year. And we possess the power, to a great extent, of so exercising the will as to direct the thoughts upon objects calculated to yield happiness and improvement rather than their opposites. Ch. XIII : Character — The True Gentleman

„Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.“

—  Samuel Smiles, Happy Homes and the Hearts That Make Them
Misattributed, Saying published anonymously in The Dayspring, Vol. 10 (1881) by the Unitarian Sunday-School Society, and quoted in Life and Labor (1887) by Smiles; this is most often attributed to George Dana Boardman, at least as early as 1884, but also sometimes attributed to William Makepeace Thackeray as early as 1891, probably because in in Life and Labor Smiles adds a quote by Thackeray right after this one, to Charles Reade in 1903, and to William James as early as 1906, because it appears in his Principles of Psychology (1890).

„We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery.“

—  Samuel Smiles, The Lives Of George And Robert Stephenson
Self-Help; with Illustrations of Character and Conduct (1859), Context: We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery. Ch. XI : Self-Culture — Facilities and Difficulties.

„No laws, however stringent, can make the idle industrious, the thriftless provident, or the drunken sober.“

—  Samuel Smiles
Self-Help; with Illustrations of Character and Conduct (1859), Ch. I : Self-Help — National and Individual

„Good actions give strength to ourselves, and inspire good actions in others.“

—  Samuel Smiles
Duty: With Illustrations of Courage, Patience, and Endurance (1880), Ch. 2, p. 49
