Pride is still aiming at the best houses: Men would be angels, angels would be gods. Aspiring to be gods, if angels fell; aspiring to be angels men rebel.

Sleep is when all the unsorted stuff comes flying out as from a dustbin upset in a high wind.
For your born writer, nothing is so healing as the realization that he has come upon the right word.
I do believe that the buck stops here, that I cannot rely upon public opinion polls to tell me what is right. I do believe that right makes might and that if I am wrong, 10 angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

Pleasure may come from illusion, but happiness can come only of reality.
God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you.
There is simply no dignified way for a woman to live alone. Oh, she can get along financially perhaps (though not nearly as well as a man), but emotionally she is never left in peace.
