The tragedy in a man's life is what dies inside of him while he lives.

Bach is played altogether too fast. Music that presupposes a visual comprehension of lines of sound advancing side by side becomes chaos for the listener; high speed makes comprehension impossible. Yet.

Only those who respect the personality of others can be of real use to them.

Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.

Anyone who proposes to do good must not expect people to roll stones out of his way, but must accept his lot calmly, even if they roll a few stones upon it.

Reverence for life is the highest court of appeal.

For animals that are overworked, underfed, and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death...and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.

Let us rejoice in the truth, wherever we find its lamp burning.
