Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead one to sovereign power.

I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair.

Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?

Ours not to reason why, ours but to do and die.

Such a one do I remember, whom to look at was love.

We cannot be kind to each other here for even an hour. We whisper, and hint, and chuckle and grin at our brother's shame; however you take it we men are a little breed.

Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Theirs is not to make reply: Theirs is not to reason why: Theirs is but to do and die.

'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Love is the only gold.

Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier.'

All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move.

My strength is as the strength of ten, because my heart is pure.

Guard your roving thoughts with a jealous care, for speech is but the dealer of thoughts, and every fool can plainly read in your words what is the hour of your thoughts.

Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.

And out of darkness came the hands that reach thro' nature, moulding men.

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Who is wise in love, love most, say least.

No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock those who work with him. Don't knock your friends. Don't knock your enemies. Don't knock yourself.

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
