Of all the acts of man, repentance is the most divine.

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.
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.
Every new opinion at its starting is precisely a minority of one.
Originality is a thing we constantly clamour for, and constantly quarrel with.
No man sees far, the most see no farther than their noses.
