The man who renounces himself, comes to himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, the eternal One.
Accept the place the divine providence has found for you.
If you put a chain around the neck of a slave, the other end fastens itself around your own.
Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved.
A man is reputed to have thought and eloquence; he cannot, for all that, say a word to his cousin or his uncle. They accuse his silence with as much reason as they would blame the insignificance of a dial in the shade. In the sun it will mark the hour. Among those who enjoy his thought, he will regain his tongue.
