What Though The Radiance Which Was Once So Bright Be Not Forever Taken From My Sight, Though Nothing Can Bring Back The Hour Of Splendour In The Grass, Of Glory In The Flower Strength In What Remains Behind, In The Primal Sympathy Which Having Been Must Ever Be, In The Soothing Thoughts That Spring Out Of Human Suffering, In The Faith That Looks Through Death In Years That Bring Philophic Mind.
~ William Wordsworth
We Know Not Of The Future, And Cannot Plan For It Much. But We Can Hold Our Spirits And Our Bodies So Pure And High, We May Cherish Such Thoughts And Ideals, And Dream Such Dreams Of Lofty Purpose, That We Can Determine And Know What Manner Of Men We Will Be Whenever And Wherever The Hour Stricks That Calls To Noble Action..., No Man Becomes Suddenly Different From His Habit And Cherished Thought.
~ Joshua L. Chamberlain, General Commander 20th Maine, Union Forces,

Our Thoughts Are Free.
~ Cicero
A Man Should Learn To Detect And Watch That Gleam That Flashes Across His Mind From Within, More Than The Lustre Of The Firmament Of Bards And Sages. Yet He Dismisses Without Notice His Own Thought, Because It Is His. In Every Work Of Genius We Recognize Our Own Rejected Thoughts They Come Back To Us With A Sort Of Alienated Majesty.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nothing Is Quite So Wretchedly Corrupt As An Aristocracy Which Has Lost Its Power But Kept Its Wealth And Which Still Has Endless Leisure To Devote To Nothing But Banal Enjoyments. All Its Great Thoughts And Passionate Energy Are Things Of The Past, And Nothing But A Host Of Petty, Gnawing Vices Now Cling To It Like Worms To A Corpse.
~ Alexis Charles Henri Clrel de Tocqueville
Watch Your Thoughts They Become Words. Watch Your Words They Become Actions. Watch Your Actions They Become Habits. Watch Your Habits They Become Character. Watch Your Character It Becomes Your Destiny.
