Our main business is not to see what lies dimly in the distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.
Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)

What we might call, by way of eminence, the Dismal Science.
The end of man is action, and not thought, though it be of the noblest.
Freedom is the one purport, wisely aimed at, or unwisely, of all man's struggles, toilings and sufferings, in this earth.
It is great, and there is no other greatness-to make one nook of God's Creation more fruitful, better, more worthy of God; to make some human heart a little wiser, manlier, happier-more blessed.
No good book, or good thing of any sort, shows its best face at first.
Great men are the commissioned guides of mankind, who rule their fellows because they are wiser.
Let each man become all that he was created capable of being.
No man lives without jostling and being jostled; in all ways he has to elbow himself through the world, giving and receiving offense.
Happy the people whose annals are blank in the history books!
