If all of us acted in unison as I act individually there would be no wars and no poverty. I have made myself personally responsible for the fate of every human being who has come my way.
I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.
Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.
Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.
Certain events such as love, or a national calamity, or May, bring pressure to bear on the individual, and if the pressure is strong enough, something in the form of verse is bound to be squeezed out.
And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.
And the high destiny of the individual is to serve rather than to rule, or to impose himself in any other way.
All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.
A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
