Stran 33 - When one would aim an arrow fair, But send it slackly from the string; And one would pierce an outer ring, And one an inner, here and there; And last the master-bowman, he, Would cleave the mark.
Stran 94 - There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest number of noble and happy human beings...
Stran 274 - Education does not mean teaching people to know what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.
Stran 292 - The man's power is active, progressive, defensive. He is eminently the doer, the creator, the discoverer, the defender. His intellect is for speculation and invention; his energy for adventure, for war, and for conquest, wherever war is just, wherever conquest necessary.

It will be done only when the motive force, that is to say, the will or spirit of the creature, is brought to its greatest strength by its own proper fuel; namely, by the affections.
Stran 294 - All such knowledge should be given her as may enable her to understand, and even to aid, the work of men : and yet it should be given, not as knowledge, — not as if it were, or could be, for her an object to know ; but only to feel, and to judge.
Stran 310 - I will not kill nor hurt any living creature needlessly, nor destroy any beautiful thing, but will strive to save and comfort all gentle life, and guard and perfect all natural beauty, upon the earth.
