Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
If I could I would always work in silence and obscurity, and let my efforts be known by their results.

I cannot express it: but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is, or should be, an existence of yours beyond you.

I see heaven's glories shine and faith shines equal.
The tyrant grinds down his slaves and they don't turn against him, they crush those beneath them.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
