He that does not fill a place at home, cannot abroad. He only goes there to hide his insignificance in a larger crowd.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every artist was first an amateur.
The sun shines today also.
The power of Nature predominates over the human will in all works of even the fine arts, in all that respects their material and external circumstanees. Nature paints the best part of the picture, carves the best part of the statue, builds the best part of the house, and speaks the best part of the oration.
The good writer seems to be writing about himself, but has his eye always on that thread of the Universe which runs through himself and all things.
For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
