At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Almost any man knows how to earn money, but not one in a million knows how to spend it.
Talk of mysteries! Think of our life in Nature - daily to be shown matter, To come in contact with it - rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks. The solid earth! . . .

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Dreams are the touchstones of our character.
Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.
We seem but to linger in manhood to tell the dreams of our childhood, and they vanish out of memory ere we learn the language.
