I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love.

The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.
Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.

Opposition is true friendship.
Pay attention to minute particulars. Take care of the little ones. Generalization and abstraction are The plea of the hypocrite, scoundrel, and knave.
The pride of the peacock is the glory of God. The lust of the goat is the bounty of God. The wrath of the lion is the wisdom of God. The nakedness of woman is the work of God.

He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars. General Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer; For Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized particles.
The most sublime act is to set another before you.
The Angel that presided o'er my birth Said 'Little creature, form'd of joy and mirth, Go, love without the help of anything on earth.'

Great things are done when men and mountains meet; This is not done by jostling in the street.
