The eye may see for the hand, but not for the mind.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

The eye is the jewel of the body.
My eye is educated to discover anything on the ground, as chestnuts, etc. It is probably wholesomer to look at the ground much than at the heavens.

We must have infinite faith in each other. If we have not, we must never let it leak out that we have not.
The smallest seed of faith is better than the largest fruit of happiness.
Faith keeps many doubts in her pay. If I could not doubt, I should not believe.
Enemies publish themselves. They declare war. The friend never declares his love.
The really efficient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but will saunter to his task surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure.
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Of all ebriosity, who does not prefer to be intoxicated by the air he breathes?
