Just as the artist arranges her life around her creativity, sacrificing conventional comforts and even social acceptance, sleeping and eating according to her own rhythms, so that her talent thrives above all else, nurtured the way a child might be, so a single person has to think hard to decipher what makes her happiest and most fulfilled.”

60. “Another sort of false prayers are our regrets. Discontent is the want of self-reliance: it is infirmity of will. Regret calamities, if you can thereby help the sufferer; if not, attend your own work, and already the evil begins to be repaired. Our sympathy is just as base. We come to them who weep foolishly, and sit down and cry for company, instead of imparting to them truth and health in rough electric shocks, putting them once more in communication with their own reason. The secret of fortune is joy in our hands. Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man. For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.”

75. “In the travellers’ world, social media have enlarged the generation gap. The internet has brought a change in the very concept of travel as a process taking one away from the familiar into the unknown. Now the familiar is not left behind and the unknown has become familiar even before one leaves home. Unpredictability – to my generation the salt that gave travelling its savour – seems unnecessary if not downright irritating to many of the young. The sunset challenge – where to sleep? – has been banished by the ease of booking into a hostel or organised campsite with a street plan provided by the internet. Moreover, relatives and friends evidently expect regular reassurance about the traveller’s precise location and welfare – and vice versa, the traveller needing to know that all is well back home. Notoriously, dependence on instant communication with distant family and friends is known to stunt the development of self-reliance. Perhaps that is why, amongst younger travellers, one notices a new timidity.”

99. “It is amazing how dispiriting it can be to enter a learning environment and to be made immediately to suppress your own exploratory inclinations. So many learning environments in the world are still like this. Don’t question what you are taught! Just listen and get good marks on the test! It conditions us to be slaves. The minute we abandon our inquisitive nature, we cede our consciences to the whims of tyrants. We are capable of better. We owe it to ourselves and each other to create better opportunities that enhance human potential. Education is the externality that allows for this, but our methods of education must promote self-guidance and self-reliance.”

She asked for neither sympathy nor help but, like bereaved widow at a wake, she simply wanted company in her mourning.”

115. “The father and daughter made their way north, through unknown sylvan paradises where only the owls and skunks know their way around. The hard work of paddling non-stop for many hours had long since stopped being difficult for Saweyimew. In spite of her beauty and grace, her back had grown strong and sinewy from years of canoe trips. She reveled in the exhilaration it always brought her, after the first few hours left her body insensible to pain or discomfort. Warm and tingly, lulled into peaceful contemplation by hours of the rhythmic paddling, the smell of the water, exotic blooms, animal musk. It all combined as one to make her feel so alive. Especially when it rained, and her body steamed against the cool drops, feeling invincible against the elements. The mountain of her father's back was like a rock against anything nature could throw against them. The stream of fragrant pipe-smoke still flowing from his lips, regardless of any obstacle. She felt at that moment, nothing would ever stop her father's pipe from smoking. Nothing, not death, not any force of the living or spirit world, would ever still her father's heart. Rain cleansing her to the core, she was a spring of raw power and self-reliance, paddling against all adversity--their master completely. Her father's daughter. At times like that, when it rained, she entirely understood and shared her father's outlook on life.”

138. “Of all the dangerous ideas that health officials could have embraced while trying to understand why we get fat, they would have been hard-pressed to find one ultimately more damaging than calories-in/calories-out. That it reinforces what appears to be so obvious - obesity as the penalty for gluttony and sloth - is what makes it so alluring. But it's misleading and misconceived on so many levels that it's hard to imagine how it survived unscathed and virtually unchallenged for the last fifty years. It has done incalculable harm. Not only is this thinking at least partly responsible for the ever-growing numbers of obese and overweight in the world - while directing attention away from the real reasons we get fat - but it has served to reinforce the perception that those who get fat have no one to blame but themselves. That eating less invariably fails as a cure for obesity is rarely perceived as the single most important reason to make us question our assumptions, as Hilde Bruch suggested half a century ago. Rather, it is taken as still more evidence that the overweight and obese are incapable of following a diet and eating in moderation. And it put the blame for their physical condition squarely on their behavior, which couldn't be further from the truth.”

The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. Not for nothing one face, one character, one fact makes much impression on him, and another none. This sculpture in the memory is not without preéstablishcd harmony. The eye was placed where one ray should fall, that it might testify of that particular ray. We but half express ourselves, and are ashamed of that divine idea which each of us represents. It may be safely trusted as proportionate and of good issues, so it be faithfully imparted, but God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give hint no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.”

I shall endeavor to nourish my parents, to nourish my family, to be the chaste husband of one wife, - but these relations I must fill after a new and unprecedented way. I appeal from your customs. I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, that I will strongly believe before the sun and moon whatever inly rejoices me, and the heart appoints. If you are noble, I will love you; if you are not, I will not hurt you and myself by hypocritical attentions. If you are true, but not in the same truth with me, cleave to your companions; I will seek my own. I do this not selfishly, but humbly and truly. It is alike your interest, and mine, and all men's, however long we have dwelt in lies, to live in truth. Does this sound harsh to-day? You will soon love what is dictated by your nature as well as mine, and, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. --- But so you may give these friends pain.

178. “¿Sabes cuál es la única obligación que tenemos en esta vida?Pues no ser imbéciles. La palabra «imbécil» es más sustanciosa de lo que parece, no te vayas a creer. Viene del latín baculus quesignifica «bastón»: el imbécil es el que necesita bastón paracaminar. Que no se enfaden con nosotros los cojos ni losancianitos, porque el bastón al que nos referimos no es el que seusa muy legítimamente para ayudar a sostenerse y dar pasitos a un cuerpo quebrantado por algún accidente o por la edad. El imbécil puede ser todo lo ágil que se quiera y dar brincos como una gacela olímpica, no se trata de eso. Si el imbécil cojea no es de los pies, sino del ánimo: es su espíritu el debilucho y cojitranco, aunque su cuerpo pegue unas volteretas de órdago. Hay imbéciles de varios modelos, a elegir:a) El que cree que no quiere nada, elque dice que todo le da igual,el que vive en un perpetuo bostezo o en siesta permanente, aunque tenga los ojos abiertos y no ronque.b) El que cree que lo quiere todo, lo primero que se le presenta ylo contrario de lo que se le presenta: marcharse y quedarse, bailar y estar sentado, masticar ajos y dar besos sublimes, todo a la vez.c) El que no sabe lo que quiere ni se molesta en averiguarlo.Imita los quereres de sus vecinos o les lleva la contraria porque sí,todo lo que hace está dictado por la opinión mayoritaria de los quele rodean: es conformista sin reflexión o rebelde sin causa.d) El que sabe que quiere y sabe lo que quiere y, más o menos,sabe por qué lo quiere pero lo quiere flojito, con miedo o con pocafuerza. A fin de cuentas, termina siempre haciendo lo que no quiere y dejando lo que quiere para mañana, a ver si entonces seencuentra más entonado.e) El que quiere con fuerza y ferocidad, en plan bárbaro, pero seha engañado a sí mismo sobre lo que es la realidad, se despistaenormemente y termina confundiendo la buena vida con aquelloque va a hacerle polvo.Todos estos tipos de imbecilidad necesitan bastón, es decir, necesitan apoyarse en cosas de fuera, ajenas, que no tienen nada que ver con la libertad y la reflexión propias. Siento decirte que losimbéciles suelen acabar bastante mal, crea lo que crea la opiniónvulgar. Cuando digo que «acaban mal» no me refiero a queterminen en la cárcel o fulminados por un rayo (eso sólo suele pasar en las películas), sino que te aviso de que suelen fastidiarse a sí mismos y nunca logran vivir la buena vida esa que tanto nosapetece a ti y a mí. Y todavía siento más tener que informarte quésíntomas de imbecilidad solemos tener casi todos; vamos, por lomenos yo me los encuentro un día sí y otro también, ojalá a ti tevaya mejor en el invento...Conclusión: ¡alerta!, ¡en guardia!, ¡laimbecilidad acecha y no perdona!”
