It is the first of all problems for a man (or woman) to find out what kind of work he (or she) is to do in this universe.
Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)

Blessed is he who has found his work; let him ask no other blessedness.
Even in the meanest sorts of Labor, the whole soul of a man is composed into a kind of real harmony the instant he sets himself to work.
A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men.
Let a man try faithfully, manfully to be right, he will daily grow more and more right. It is at the bottom of the condition on which all men have to cultivate themselves.
Clean undeniable right, clear undeniable might: either of these once ascertained puts an end to battle. All battle is a confused experiment to ascertain one and both of these.
Over the times thou hast no power. . . . Solely over one man thou hast quite absolute power. Him redeem and make honest.
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together.
Silence is deep as Eternity; speech is shallow as Time.
Under all speech that is good for anything there lies a silence that is better. Silence is deep as Eternity; speech is shallow as Time.
