Be curious, not judgmental.

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.

I accept reality and dare not question it.

I am as bad as the worst, but, thank God, I am as good as the best.

I celebrate myself, and sing myself.

I say to mankind, Be not curious about God. For I, who am curious about each, am not curious about God - I hear and behold God in every object, yet understand God not in the least.

The real war will never get in the books.

The United States themselves are essentially the greatest poem.

Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.

Wisdom is not finally tested in the schools, Wisdom cannot be pass'd from one having it to another not having it, Wisdom is of the soul, is not susceptible of proof, is its own proof.
