If we had more justice there would be less need of charity.

The only true test of values, either of men or of things, is that of their ability to make the world a better place in which to live.
I foresee the time when industry shall no longer denude the forests which require generations to mature, nor use up the mines which were ages in making, but shall draw its raw material largely from the annual produce of the fields. I am convinced that we shall be able to get out of yearly crops most of the basic materials which we now get from forest and mine.

Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

Do any of us really have a clue? We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Or what word will come up in a conversation that will change our lives.

You have to figure out what that is, and you have to make a plan to get to it. And the plan has got to have a timeline. You have to choose something that you can afford to do and then lock it in and passionately do it.
Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person, young and old shared just a little of what he is good at doing.
My meaning simply is, that whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do well; that whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself to completely; that in great aims and in small, I have always been thoroughly in earnest.
You be the clouds above, I’ll be the grass below, and everything in between will be where our love will grow.
