Flowers are beautiful hieroglyphics of nature, with which she indicates how much she loves us.
All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience.
That which is eternal in Woman lifts us above.

We cannot possess what we do not understand.
Words are good, but there is something better. The best is not to be explained by words. The spirit in which we act is the chief matter. Action can only be understood and represented by the spirit.
The man who is born with a talent which he is meant to use finds his greatest happiness in using it.
No one should be rich except those who understand it.
When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be.
And what does really matter? That is easy: thinking and doing, doing and thinking---and these are the sum of all wisdom. . . . Both must move ever onward in life, to and fro, like breathing in and breathing out.
