The time to be happy is now, and the place to be happy is here.
Taste and love are not the servants of the will. Love is and must be free. It rises from the heart like perfume from a flower.

There is a quiet about the life of a farmer, and the hope of a serene old age, that no other business or profession can promise.
A great man is a torch in the darkness, a beacon in superstition's night, an inspiration and a prophecy.
