Thought is the seed of action.
      - [Thought]

Thought takes man out of servitude into freedom.
      - [Thought]

Thoughts come into our minds by avenues which we never left open, and thoughts go out of our minds through avenues which we never voluntarily opened.
      - [Thought]

Thoughts rule the world.
      - [Thought]

Thus grows up fashion, an equivocal semblance, the most puissant, the most fantastic and frivolous, the most feared and followed, and which morals and violence assault in vain.
      - [Fashion]

Thus is man made equal to every event. He can face danger for the right. A poor, tender, painful body, he can run into flame or bullets or pestilence, with duty for his guide.
      - [Duty]

Time dissipates to shining ether the solid angularity of facts.
      - [Time]

Time is indeed the theater and seat of illusions; nothing is so ductile and elastic. The mind stretches an hour to a century, and dwarfs an age to an hour.
      - [Illusion]

'Tis certain that worship stands in some commanding relation to the health of man, and to his highest powers, so as to be, in some manner, the source of intellect.
      - [Worship]

'Tis goodwill makes intelligence.
      - [Intellect]

'Tis the best use of fate to teach a fatal courage. Go face the fire at sea, or the cholera in your friend's house, or the burglar in your own, or what danger lies in the way of duty, knowing you are guarded by the cherubim of destiny.
      - [Fate]

'Tis the good reader that makes the good book; a good head cannot read amiss, in every book he finds passages which seem confidences or asides hidden from all else and unmistakably meant for his ear.
      - [Reading]

To be able to discern that what is true is true, and that what is false is false,--this is the mark and character of intelligence.
      - [Intellect]

To be great is to be misunderstood.
      - [Greatness]

To be simple is to be great.
      - [Simplicity]

To fill the hour, that is happiness; to fill the hour, and leave no crevice for a repentance or an approval.
      - [Happiness]

To finish the moment, to find the journey's end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.
      - [Wisdom]

To help the young soul, to add energy, inspire hope, and blow the coals into a useful flame; to redeem defeat by new thought and firm action, this, though not easy, is the work of divine man.
      - [Divinity]

To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.
      - [Courage]

To see the miraculous in the common.
      - [Miracles]

To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again.
      - [Eyes]

To the poet, to the philosopher, to the saint, all things are friendly and sacred, all events profitable, all days holy, all men divine.
      - [Philosophy]

To wade in marshes and sea margins is the destiny of certain bird, and they are so accurately made for this that they are imprisoned in those places. Each animal out of its habitat would starve. To the physician, each man, each woman, is an amplification of one organ. A soldier, a locksmith, a bank-clerk, and a dancer could not exchange functions. And thus we are victims of adaptation.
      - [Adaptation]

Tobacco, coffee, alcohol, hashish, prussic acid, strychnine, are weak dilutions; the surest poison is time. This cup which nature puts to our lips, has a wonderful virtue, surpassing that of any other draught. It opens the senses, adds power, fills us with exalted dreams, which we call hope, love, ambition, science; especially it creates a craving for larger draughts of itself.
      - [Time]

Traveling is a fool's paradise.
      - [Travel]
