What is grand is necessarily obscure to weak men. That which can be made explicit to the idiot is not worth my care.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.
As a man is, so he sees. As the eye is formed, such are its powers.
To generalize is to be an idiot.
Love to faults is always blind, always is to joy inclined. Lawless, winged, and unconfined, and breaks all chains from every mind.
Travelers repose and dream among my leaves.
I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love.
I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.
I was angry with my friend: I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow.
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
