Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

The man who is dissatisfied with himself, what can he do?
Do not despair of life. Think of the fox, prowling in a winter night to satisfy his hunger. His race survives; I do not believe any of them ever committed suicide.
Pursue, keep up with, circle round and round your life, as a dog does his master's chaise. Do what you love. Know your own bone, gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
We live thick and are in each other's way, and stumble over one another, and I think we thus lose some respect for one another.
To watch this crystal globe just sent from heaven to associate with me. While these clouds and this somber drizzling weather shut all in, we two draw nearer and know one another.
Decay and disease are often beautiful, like the pearly tear of the shellfish and the hectic glow of consumption.
So thouroughly and sincerely are we compelled to reverencing our lives and denying the possibility of change. 'This is the only way' we say, but there are so many ways, as there can be drawn radii from the center.
Do not despair of your life. You have force enough to overcome your obstacles.
