Not failure, but low aim, is crime.
The surest plan to make a man is, think him so.
I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.
I accept reality and dare not question it.
To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.
Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me is a miracle.
The foolish and the dead alone never change their opinions.
He most honors my style who learns under it to destroy the teacher.
To die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.
The only faith that wears well and holds its color in all weathers is that which is woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience.
