God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise, shall give him no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.
There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide
Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.
Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world.
