It is good people who make good places.

If they strain me up tight, why, let 'em look out! I can't bear it, and I won't.

We call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.

There is no religion without love, 
and people may talk as much as 
they like about their religion, but 
if it does not teach them to be good 
and kind to man and beast, 
it is all a sham.

Do you know why this world is as bad as it is?... It is because people think only about their own business, and won't trouble themselves to stand up for the oppressed, nor bring the wrong-doers to light... My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt

My troubles are all over, and I am at home; and often before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my friends under the apple trees.
