A Quote by Philip Gilbert Hamerton on discipline, existence, individuality, life, sharing, society, solitude, strength, and war

A perfect life is like that of a ship of war which has its own place in the fleet and can share in its strength and discipline, but can also go forth alone in the solitude of the infinite sea. We ought to belong to society, to have our place in it, and yet be capable of a complete individual existence outside of it.

Philip Gilbert Hamerton (1834 - 1894)
