When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.
When man does not have firm, calm lines on the horizon of his life- mountain and forest lines, as it were- then a man's innermost will becomes agitated, preoccupied, and wistful.
When a human being resists his whole age and stops it at the gate to demand an accounting, this must have influence.
When a man is ill his very goodness is sickly.
When virtue has slept, it will arise again all the fresher.
When one has not had a good father, one must create one.
