Wisdom from Polonius

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whoso would be a man must be a non-conformist.

Men are better than their theology.

The faith that stands on authority is not faith.

If eyes were made for seeing, Then Beauty is its own excuse for being.

Can anybody remember when the times were not hard and money not scarce?

Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force; that thoughts rule the world.
