Prudence is the virtue of the senses. It is content to seek health of body by complying with physical conditions, and health of mind by the laws of the intellect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pay every debt, as if God wrote the bill.
My life should be unique; it should be an alms, a battle, a conquest, a medicine.
I would put myself in the attitude to look in the eye an abstract truth, and I cannot. I blench and withdraw on this side and on that. I seem to know what he meant who said, No man can see God face to face and live.
Man Thinking must not be subdued by his instruments. Books are for the scholar's idle times. When he can read God directly, the hour is too precious to be wasted in other men's transcripts of their readings.
Reality is a sliding door.
