Tell the truth, but tell it slant.

Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature's delight.
Poetry is the key to the hieroglyphics of nature.
Assent -- and you are sane -- , demur -- you're straightway dangerous -- , and handled with a Chain -- .
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul -- and sings the tunes without the words -- and never stops at all.
The Brain is wider than the sky-.
Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.
If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
I dwell in Possibility.
Come into the light of things. Let nature be your teacher.
It is the nature of all greatness not to be exact.
Thou strange piece of wild nature!
It would be a poor thing to be an atom in a universe without physicists, and physicists are made of atoms. A physicist is an atom's way of knowing about atoms.
Desire, like the atom, is explosive with creative force.
I am, in point of fact, a particularly haughty and exclusive person, of pre-Adamite ancestral descent. You will understand this when I tell you that I can trace my ancestry back to a protoplasmal primordial atomic globule.
That what is true of business and politics is gloriously true of the professions, the arts and crafts, the sciences, the sports. That the best picture has not yet been painted; the greatest poem is still unsung; the mightiest novel remains to be written; the divinest music has not been conceived even by Bach. In science, probably ninety-nine percent of the knowable has to be discovered. We know only a few streaks about astronomy. We are only beginning to imagine the force and composition of the atom. Physics has not yet found any indivisible matter, or psychology a sensible soul.
The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.
Our ideas must be as broad as Nature if they are to interpret Nature.
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them -- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is.
