A Quote by James Russell Lowell on church, fate, modesty, secrets, simplicity, and world

The wisest man could ask no more of fate Than to be simple, modest, manly, true, Safe from the many, honored by the few; Nothing to court in Church, or World, or State, But inwardly in secret to be great.

James Lowell (1819 - 1891)
