People only see what they are prepared to see.
      - [Perception]

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

People with great gifts are easy to find, but symmetrical and balanced ones never.

Perpetual modernness is the measure of merit in every work of art.

Progress is the activity of today and the assurance of tomorrow.
      - [Progress]

Read proudly--put the duty of being read invariably on the author. If he is not read, whose fault is it? I am quite ready to be charmed, but I shall not make-believe I am charmed.
      - in an address dedicating Concord library, May, 1873
        [Reading]

Religion must always be a crab fruit; it cannot be grafted, and keep its wild beauty.
      - [Religion]

Repose and cheerfulness are the badge of the gentleman--repose in energy.
      - [Gentlemen]

Revolutions never go backwards.
      - [Progress]

Right is more beautiful than private affection, and is compatible with universal wisdom.

Say, what other metre is it
  Than the meeting of the eyes?
    Nature poureth into nature
      Through the channels of that feature
        Riding on the ray of sight,
          Fleeter far than whirlwinds go,
            Or for service, or delight,
              Hearts to hearts their meaning show.
      - [Eyes]
