The Dreamer

Unfortunately for us and for the world we live in, it may still be said that many men are ignorant enough to want to stay that way.

I am afraid that the Golden Rule is now tarnished beyond recognition. The dreamer is the man among us who wishes he were what he isn't but leave him to his dreams otherwise he will be much less than he is.

If you refrain from worrying about death before you will probably find it quite simple to forget about it after.

When the world has slipped and stands on the brink of utter obliteration, it is no time for man to rest and bless the inches which yet remain, it is time for him to exert himself to the extent of his ability to bring both himself and his fellow human beings to a safer position than was their lot before the fall.
