A talent is formed in stillness, a character in the world's torrent.
A purpose you impart is no longer your own.
Be above it! Make the world serve your purpose, but do not serve it.
If a man or woman is born ten years sooner or later, their whole aspect and performance shall be different.
Without haste! without rest! Bind the motto to thy breast! Bear it with thee as a spell; Storm or sunshine , guard it well.

People have a peculiar pleasure in making converts, that is, in causing others to enjoy what they enjoy, thus finding their own likeness represented and reflected back to them.
I love those who yearn for the impossible.
One lives but once in the world.
Time does not relinquish its rights, either over human beings or over mountains.
