While one finds company in himself and his pursuits, he cannot feel old, no matter what his years may be.
First find the man in yourself if you will inspire manliness in others.
Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.
That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.

Our ideals are our better selves.
To be ignorant of one's ignorance is the malady of the ignorant.
