A good book is the precious life blood of a master
spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life
Beauty is Nature’s Coin, must not be hoarded. But must be current, and the good thereof
Consists in mutual and partaken bliss…

Breath such divine enchanting ravishment?

Give me the liberty to know, to think, to believe, and to
utter freely according to conscience, above all other

love not freedom, but licence
Often times nothing profits more than self – esteem,
grounded on what is just and right.

To know this only, that he nothing knew.
The mind is its own place and in itself can make a
heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
What is strength, without a double share of wisdom.
