-They say to me in their awakening, "You and the world you live in are but a grain of sand upon the infinite shore of an infinite sea."
And in my dream I say to them, "I am the infinite sea, and all worlds are but grains of sand upon my shore."

-We measure time according to the movement of countless suns; and they measure time by little machines in their little pockets.
Now tell me, how could we ever meet at the same place and the same time?

-I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.

-There is no struggle of soul and body in the minds of those whose souls are asleep and whose bodies are out of tune

-Inspiration will always sing; inspiration will never explain.

-We often borrow from our tomorrows to pay our debts to our yesterdays

-Please do not whitewash your inherent faults with your acquired virtues. I would have the faults; they are like my own.

-My friend, you and I shall remain strangers unto life,
And unto one another, and each unto himself,
Until the day when you shall speak and I shall listen
Deeming your voice my own voice;
And when I shall stand before you
Thinking myself standing before a mirror.

-I said to Life, "I would hear Death speak."
And Life raised her voice a little higher and said, "You hear him now."
