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.
Music is well said to be the speech of angels.
There is a perennial nobleness, and even sacredness, in work. Were he never so benighted, forgetful of his high calling, there is always hope in a man that actually and earnestly works: in idleness alone there is perpetual despair.
Nothing that was worthy in the past departs; no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die; but is all still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless changes.
Of all paths a man could strike into, there is, at any given moment, a best path for every man; to find this path, and to walk in it, is the one thing needful for him.
