"To Him who in the love of nature holds communion with her visible forms, she speaks A various language; for his gayer hours she has a voice of gladness, and she glides Into his darker musings, that steals away their sharpness, ere he is aware"
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler"
