Books are the best type of the influence of the past… The theory of books is noble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
For the world is not painted, or adorned, but is from the beginning beautiful; and God has not made some beautiful things, but Beauty is the creator of the universe.
Do not waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.
Without a rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.
A man only knows what he's experienced.
