„When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action.“

—  Dinah Craik English novelist and poet 1826 - 1887

Christian's Mistake (1865). p. 64
Kontext: When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action. We must speculate no more on our duty, but simply do it. When we have done it, however blindly, perhaps Heaven will show us why.

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes Poet, essayist, physician 1809 - 1894

On the Seventieth Birthday of Julia Ward Howe (May 27, 1899); reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„To be 70 years young is sometimes far more cheerful and hopeful than to be 40 years old.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. United States Supreme Court justice 1841 - 1935

Almost certainly attributable to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., who is, in various sources, credited with having said this in letters to Harriet Beecher Stowe (who turned 70 in 1881) and Julia Ward Howe (who turned 70 in 1889), as well as having made the commented about himself. Holmes, Sr. reached the age of 70 in 1879, while Holmes, Jr. reached that age in 1911, some time after the earliest reports of this quote.
