“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large — I contain multitudes.”

“What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.”

[.] “Failing to fetch me at first, keep encouraged. Missing me one place, search another. I stop somewhere waiting for you.”

[.] “I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.”

[.] “Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.”

[.] “I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”

[.] “Be curious, not judgmental.”

[.] “Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.”

[.] “Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.”

Walt Whitman
