Man is a substance clad in shadows.
Instinct is intelligence incapable of self-consciousness.

Pain has its own noble joy, when it starts a strong consciousness of life, from a stagnant one.
Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die, without arranging for it.
The worst education which teaches self-denial, is better than the best which teaches everything else, and not that.
There is no lie that a man will not believe; and there is no man who does not believe many lies; and there is no man who believes only lies.
