#1041 Wider than our views

What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.

However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

The universe is wider than our views of it.

Quotes by Henry David Thoreau

- What lives within you?
- What foundations are you building?
- What need we learn from nature and the universe?
