F
Lord of the far horizons,
Give us the eyes to see
Over the verge of the sundown
The beauty that is to be.

R
I often wish . . . that I could rid the world of the tyranny of facts. What are facts but compromises? A fact merely marks the point where we have agreed to let investigation cease.
A
Set me a task in which I can put something of my very self, and it is a task no longer; it is joy; it is art.
N
There is a passion for perfection which you will rarely see fully developed; but you may note this fact, that in successful lives it is never wholly lacking.
K
Have little care that Life is brief,
And less that Art is long.
Success is in the silences
Though Fame is in the song.
