Sincerity is the highest complement you can pay.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
He has reason, as all the philosophic and poetic class have: but he has also, what they have not.--this strong solving sense to reconcile his poetry with the appearances of the world, and build a bridge from the streets of cities to the Atlantis.
He who knows that power is inborn, that he is weak because he has looked for good out of him and elsewhere, and so perceiving, throws himself unhesitatingly on his thought, instantly rights himself, stands in the erect position, commands his limbs, works miracles; just as a man who stands on his feet is stronger than a man who stands on his head.
What we know, is a point to what we do not know.
We are to dignify to each other the daily needs and offices of man's life, and embellish it by courage, wisdom and unity.
Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.
