Faint heart never won true friend. O my friend may it come to pass once that when you are my friend I may be yours.
Henry David Thoreau

The wildest sound ever heard makes the woods ring far and wide.
Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.
The attitude of resistance is one of weakness inasmuch as it only faces an enemy. It has its back to all that is truly attractive.
