love of beauty is taste. the creation of beauty is art.


A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us.

A great man is always willing to be little.

A man is a method, a progressive arrangement; a selecting principle, gathering his like to him; wherever he goes.

A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give him no peace.

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

All mankind love a lover.

Always do what you are afraid to do.

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
The wave of evil washes all our institutions alike.

The world is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck.

The years teach much which the days never know.

There are as many pillows of illusion as flakes in a snow-storm. We wake from one dream into another dream.
