Fear is a noose that binds until it strangles.
We learn the rope of life by untying its knots.
No eyes that have seen beauty ever lose their sight.
People mistake their limitations for high standards.
The realization of ignorance is the first act of knowing.
Acceptance of prevailing standards often means we have no standards of our own.
I am not less poet; I am more conscious of all that I am, am not, and might become.
Men try to run life according to their wishes; life runs itself according to necessity.
Most novices picture themselves as masters - and are content with the picture. This is why there are so few masters.
There is a natty kind of mind
That slicks its thoughts,
Culls its oughts,
Trims its views,
Prunes its trues,
And never suspects it is a rind.
