HE who intermits
The appointed task and duties of the day
Untunes full oft the pleasures of the day;
Checking the finer spirits that refuse
To flow, when purposes are lightly changed.
William Wordsworth


IT is astonishing how all of us are generally cumbered up with the thousand and one hindrances and duties which are not such, bar which nevertheless wind us about with their spider threads and fetter the movement of our wings. It is the lack of order which makes us slaves; the confusion of to-day discounts the freedom of to-morrow.
Henri F. Amiel


THINK not thy time is short in this world since the world itself is not long. The created world is but a small parenthesis in Eternity, and a short interposition for a time between such a state of duration, as was before it and may be after it.
Sir Thomas Browne


IT is not larger time that we want, so much as the more capacious soul to flow through every pore of the little which we have.
James Martineau
