Dreams are the touchstones of our character.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Goodness is the only investment that never fails
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.
love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.
I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.
None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.
Henry David Thoreau
