Our eyes do not rest so long as on the few who especially love their own lives – who dwell apart at more generous intervals, and cherish a single purpose behind formalities of society with such a steadiness that of all men only their two eyes seem to meet in one focus.


It is the height of art that on the first perusal plain common sense should appear – on the second, severe truth – on a third, beauty – and having these warrants for its depth and reality, we may then enjoy the beauty forever more.


I have great faith in a seed…Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.

– Henry David Thoreau
