“Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.”
The Honest Man's Fortune, (1613; published 1647)
As quoted by Dick Cavett, in The Swimmers, The New York Times (3 June 2007)
“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”
Said to his nephew, Willie James, in 1902; quoted in Leon Edel, Henry James: A Life, vol V: The Master 1901-1916 (1972)
“I know not where His islands lift
Their fronded palms in air;
I only know I cannot drift
Beyond His love and care.”
―John Greenleaf Whittier
The eternal Goodness, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
A Voice Crying in the Wilderness (Vox Clamantis in Deserto) (1990)
