Providence has nothing good or high in store for one who does not resolutely aim at something high or good. A purpose is the eternal condition of success.
Love is an energy which exists of itself. It is its own value.

The planting of trees is the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Hope, like faith, is nothing if it is not courageous; it is nothing if it is not ridiculous.
And we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead, and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
