O conscience, upright and stainless, how bitter a sting to thee is a little fault!
Small projects need much more help than great.
Will cannot be quenched against its will.
He listens well who takes notes.
If the present world go astray, the cause is in you, in you it is to be sought.
I love to doubt as well as know.
I wept not, so to stone within I grew.
The sad souls of those who lived without blame and without praise.
No one thinks of how much blood it costs.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here!
A mighty flame followeth a tiny spark.
At this high moment, ability failed my capacity to describe.
Worldly fame is but a breath of wind that blows now this way, and now that, and changes name as it changes direction.
The more perfect a thing is, the more susceptible to good and bad treatment it is.
Heaven wheels above you, displaying to you her eternal glories, and still your eyes are on the ground.
