Men are born to succeed, not to fail.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

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.
I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.
If we knew all the laws of Nature, we should need only fact, or the description of one actual phenomenon, to infer all the particular results at that point.
How rarely I meet with a man who can be free, even in thought! We all live according to rule. Some men are bedridden; all world-ridden.
