Most are engaged in business the greater part of their lives, because the soul abhors a vacuum and they have not discovered any continuous employment for man's nobler faculties.
If a man constantly aspires, is he not elevated?
Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.
Be not simply good; be good for something.
Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.
Being is the great explainer.
Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
I do not know how to distinguish between our waking life and a dream. Are we not always living the life that we imagine we are?
