  • To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
  • A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.

  • All our progress is an unfolding, like a vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.
