We must be our own before we can be another’s.
We are by nature observers, and thereby learners. That is our permanent state.
Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.
To be great is to be misunderstood.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
The key to every man is his thought.
The faith that stands on authority is not faith.
The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet.
Our faith comes in moments; our vice is habitual.
Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of our own mind.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
