there can be no such thing as wisdom — 
and no such thing as public liberty 
without freedom of speech.

You are capable of more than you know. 
Choose a goal that seems right for you 
and strive to be the best, 
however hard the path. 
Aim high. 
Behave honourably. 
Prepare to be alone at times, 
and to endure failure. 
Persist! 
The world needs all you can give.

So let us die
And never part,
Die united,
Heart to heart,
Never waking,
Never fearing,
Nameless,
Endless rapture sharing,
Each to each devoted,
In love alone abiding.

If we are always arriving and departing, 
it is also true that we are eternally anchored. 
One's destination is never a place 
but rather a new way of looking at things.

Philosophy is written in this grand book, the universe, 
which stands continually open to our gaze. 
But the book cannot be understood 
unless one first learns to comprehend the language 
and read the letters in which it is composed.

A beast does not know that he is a beast, 
and the nearer a man gets to being a beast, 
the less he knows it.

Death not merely ends life, 
it also bestows upon it a silent completeness, 
snatched from the hazardous flux 
to which all things human are subject.

Intelligence and courtesy 
not always are combined; 
Often in a wooden house 
a golden room we find.

Thursday, 17 November 2016

A noble man compares and estimates himself 
by an idea which is higher than himself; 
and a mean man, 
by one lower than himself. 

The one produces aspiration; 
the other ambition, 
which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.

can we create the illusion 
for the moment 
that we're not alone.

Life is a song — sing it.

Life is a challenge — meet it. 
Life is a dream — realise it. 
Life is a sacrifice — offer it. 
Life is love — enjoy it.
