Nothing can work me damage except myself; the harm that I sustain I carry about with me, and never am a real sufferer but by my own fault.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We aim above the mark to hit the mark.
The finest and noblest ground on which people can live is truth; the real with the real; a ground on which nothing is assumed.
A man's power to connect his thought with its proper symbol, and so to utter it, depends on the simplicity of his character, that is, upon his love of truth, and his desire to communicate it without loss.
Spiritual force is stronger than material force; thoughts rule the world.
Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense.
