No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.
The martyr cannot be dishonored. Every lash inflicted is a tongue of fame; every prison a more illustrious abode.

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.
Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.
When we quarrel, how we wish we had been blameless.
Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.
