but quickly to see how to make them good.

The limits of my language 
the limits of my world.

I hate war 
as only a soldier who has lived it can, 
only as one who has seen 
its brutality, 
its futility, 
its stupidity.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, 
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. 
To make a deep physical path, 
we walk again and again. 
To make a deep mental path, 
we must think over and over 
the kind of thoughts 
we wish to dominate our lives.

covering the depths of the heart.

Language is not only the vehicle of thought, 
it is a great and efficient instrument in thinking.

Dissent is the native activity of the scientist, 
and it has got him into a good deal of trouble in the last years. 
But if that is cut off, 
what is left will not be a scientist.

In solitude 
the mind gains strength 
and learns to lean upon itself.

We don't receive wisdom; 
we must discover it for ourselves 
after a journey 
that no one can take for us 
or spare us.

A fool sees not the same tree

I would rather excel 
in the knowledge 
of what is excellent, 
than in the extent 
of my power and possessions.

It is not in the stars 
to hold our destiny 
but in ourselves.

Do not dwell in the past, 
do not dream of the future, 
concentrate the mind on the present moment.

A child-like man is not a man
whose development has been arrested; 
on the contrary, 
he is a man
who has given himself a chance
of continuing to develop 
long after most adults have muffled themselves 
in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.
