Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. 
It has created the word loneliness 
to express the pain of being alone. 
And it has created the word solitude 
to express the glory of being alone.

All men dream, but not equally. 
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, 
wake in the day to find that it was vanity: 
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, 
for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, 
to make them possible.

The time at our disposal each day is elastic; 
the passions we feel dilate it, 
those that inspire us shrink it, 
and habit fills it.

The first step to participation in the destiny of humanity today, 
which is neither of this folk nor of that, 
but of the whole population of the globe, 
is to recognise every such local image of a god 
as but one of many thousands, millions, even perhaps billions, 
of locally useful symbolisations 
of that same mystery 
beyond sight or thought 
which our teachers have taught us to seek 
in their god alone.
