Passion is the drunkenness of the mind.
Innocence is like polished armor; it adorns and defends.
Wonder is from surprise, and surprise stops with experience.

Most of the appearance of mirth in the world is not mirth, it is art. The wounded spirit is not seen, but walks under a disguise.
It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people don't care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done.
