A CREED is a rod,
And a crown is of night;
But this thing is God:
To be man with thy might
To grow straight in the strength of thy spirit, and
live out thy life as the light.
Algernon C. Swinburne

I CANNOT praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed, that never sallies out and seeks her adversary, but slinks out of the race, where that immortal garland is to be run for, not without dust and heat.
John Milton

TO enjoy true happiness we must travel into a very far country, and even out of ourselves; for the Pearl we seek for is not to be found in the Indian, but in the Empyrean Ocean.
Sir Thomas Browne

WHAT I must do concerns me, not what the people think.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
