My friend is one... who take me for what I am.

The civilized man is a more experienced and wiser savage.

Gardening is civil and social, but it wants the vigor and freedom of the forest and the outlaw. There may be an excess of cultivation as well as of anything else, until civilization becomes pathetic. A highly cultivated man, -all whose bones can be bent! whose heaven-born virtues are but good manners!

Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be.

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilized.

A man's riches are based on what he can do without.

The only way to tell the truth is to speak with kindness. Only the words of a loving man can be heard.

We must look for a long time before we can see.

The stove not only took up room and scented the house, but it concealed the fire, and I felt as if I had lost a companion. You can always see a face in the fire.
