Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.
If the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come round to him.
Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.
It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion. It is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who, in the midst of the world, keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
A ruddy drop of manly blood The surging sea outweighs; The world uncertain comes and goes, The lover rooted stays.
Never self-possessed, or prudent, love is all abandonment.
Love is like a hunter, who cares not for the game when once caught, which he may have pursued with the most intense and breathless eagerness. Love is strongest in pursuit; friendship in possession.
Love is the essence of God.
The reason why all men honor love is because it looks up, and not down; aspires and not despairs.
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
