Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.
Learned we may be with another man's learning: we can only be wise with wisdom of our own.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
I am a lover of truth, a worshipper of freedom, a celebrant at the altar of language and purity and tolerance.
Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.
The ethos of redemption is realized in self-mastery, by means of temperance, that is, continence of desires.
Your inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed possible
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives.
It is easy to be brave at a safe distance.
I have had good experience and trial of this world...I know what it is to be a subject, what to be a sovereign, what to have good neighbours, and sometimes meet evil willers. I have found treason in trust, seen great benefits little regarded.

To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
The absent are never without fault, nor the present without excuse.
Each day is a little life; every waking and rising a little birth; every fresh morning a little youth; every going to rest and sleep a little death.
When prosperity comes, do not use all of it.
Do not reveal what you have thought upon doing, but by wise council keep it secret being determined to carry it into execution.
