“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
“I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions.”
“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.”
