Ah, love, let us be true
  To one another!
      - [Love]

Conduct is three-fourths of our life and its largest concern.
      - [Conduct]

Culture is to know the best that has been said and thought in the world.
      - [Culture]

Culture looks beyond machinery, culture hates hatred; culture has one great passion--the passion for sweetness and light. It has one even yet greater, the passion for making them all prevail. It is not satisfied till we all come to a perfect man; it knows that the sweetness and light of the few must be imperfect until the raw and unkindly masses of humanity are touched with sweetness and light.
      - [Culture]

France famed in all great arts, in none supreme.
      - [France]

Genius is mainly an affair of energy.
      - [Genius]

How many minds--almost all the great ones--were formed in secrecy and solitude!
      - [Mind]

It does not try to reach down to the level of inferior classes; it does not try to win them for this or that sect of its own, with ready-made judgments and watchwords of its own. It seeks to away with classes, to make the best that has been taught and known in the world current everywhere, to make all men live in an atmosphere of sweetness and light, where they may use ideas, as it uses them itself, freely--nourished, and not bound by them.
      - [Culture]

Journalism is literature in a hurry.
      - [Journalism]

Know, man hath all which nature hath, but more, and in that more lie all his hopes of good.
      - [Goodness]

Men of culture are the true apostles of equality.
      - [Culture]

Not a having and a resting, but a growing and becoming, is the character of perfection as culture conceives it.
      - [Perfection]

Now, the whole world hears
  Or shall hear,--surely shall hear, at the last,
    Though men delay, and doubt, and faint, and fail,--
      That promise faithful:--"Fear not, little flock!
        It is your Father's will and joy, to give
          To you, the Kingdom"!
      - [Christianity]

Poetry interprets in two ways: it interprets by expressing, with magical felicity, the physiognomy and movements of the outward world; and it interprets by expressing, with inspired conviction, the ideas and laws of the inward world of man's moral and spiritual nature. In other words, poetry is interpretative both by having natural magic in it, and by having moral profundity.
      - [Poetry]

Poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive, and widely effective mode of saying things.
      - [Poetry]

Religion--that voice of the deepest human experience.
      - [Religion]

Resolve to be thyself; and know that he who finds himself, loses his misery.
      - [Self-control]

Resolve to find thyself; and to know that he who finds himself, loses his misery.
      - [Self-knowledge]

The grand style arises in poetry, when a noble nature, treats with simplicity or with severity a serious subject.
      - [Poetry]

The imitators of Shakespeare, fixing their attention on his wonderful power of expression, have directed their imitation to this.
      - [Shakespeare]

The stream of tendency in which all things seek to fulfill the law of their being.
      - [Evolution]

To have the sense of creative activity is the great happiness and the great proof of being alive.
      - [Creativity]

Truth illuminates and gives joy; and it is by the bond of joy, not of pleasure, that men's spirits are indissolubly held.
      - [Truth]

Truth sits upon the lips of dying men.
      - [Truth]

Use your gifts faithfully, and they shall be enlarged; practice what you know, and you shall attain to higher knowledge.
      - [Knowledge]
