All Good Things Are Wild And Free.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams live the life you have imagined.
It is not what you look at that matters. It is what you see.
Never look back unless you are planning on going that way.
The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.
The law will never make a man free; it is men who have got to make the law free.
Thaw with her gentle persuasion is more powerful than Thor with his hammer. The one melts, the other breaks into pieces.
The Artist is he who detects and applies the law from observation of the works of Genius, whether of man or Nature. The Artisan is he who merely applies the rules which others have detected.
The bluebird carries the sky on his back.
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
