Never be afraid to treat the path alone. Know which is your path and follow it wherever it may lead you; do not feel you have to follow in someone else's footsteps.

The best cure for the body is a quiet mind.
Books are divided into two classes, the books of the hour and the books of all time.
Books in a large university library system: 2, 000,000. Books in an average large city library: 1 0,000. Average number of books in a chain bookstore: 30, 000. Books in an average neighborhood branch library: 20, 000.
Old books, you know well, are books of the world's youth, and new books are the fruits of its age.
There is no such thing as a moral book or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all.
Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts -- the book of their deeds, the book of their words and the book of their art.
The Bible remained for me a book of books, still divine -- but divine in the sense that all great books are divine which teach men how to live righteously.
Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
The books we think we ought to read are poky, dull, and dry; The books that we would like to read we are ashamed to buy; The books that people talk about we never can recall; And the books that people give us, oh, they're the worst of all.
In every fat book there is a thin book trying to get out.
When you publish a book, it's the world's book. The world edits it.
A book that furnishes no quotations is no book -- it is a plaything.
All the world knows me in my book, and my book in me.
Most books today seemed to have been written overnight from books read the day before.
I think the adjective post-modernist really means mannerist. Books about books is fun but frivolous.
Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
I'm youth, I'm joy, I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
O what a thing is age! Death without death's quiet.
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing...
To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going.
We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
However fiercely opposed one may be to the present order, an old respect for the idea of order itself often prevents people from distinguishing between order and those who stand for order, and leads them in practice to respect individuals under the pretext of respecting order itself.
Oh, order! Material order, intellectual order, moral order! What a comfort and strength, and what an economy! To know where we are going and what we want; that is order. To keep ones word, to do the right thing, and at the right time: more order. To have everything under ones hand, to put ones whole army through its manoeuvres, to work with all ones resources: still order. To discipline ones habits and efforts and wishes, to organize ones life and distribute ones time, to measure ones duties and assert ones rights, to put ones capital and resources, ones talents and opportunities to profit: again and always order. Order is light, peace, inner freedom, self-determination: it is power. To conceive order, to return to order, to realize order in oneself, around oneself, by means of oneself, this is aesthetic and moral beauty, it is well-being, it is what ought to be.
What a life! True life is elsewhere. We are not in the world.
Among my most prized possessions are words that I have never spoken.
But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Markets change, tastes change, so the companies and the individuals who choose to compete in those markets must change.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.
Keep quiet. Do your work in the world, but inwardly keep quiet. Then all will come to you.
Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.
War begets quiet, quiet idleness, idleness disorder, disorder ruin; likewise ruin order, order virtue, virtue glory, and good fortune.
In cities no one is quiet but many are lonely; in the country, people are quiet but few are lonely.
The best work never was and never will be done for money.
