F
There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.

R
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
A
Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the action stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.
N
We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another.
K
The shell is America's most active contribution to the formation of character. A tough hide. Grow it early.
