Busy day today so read but little - here however are two thoughts from the man
Let us spend one day as deliberately as Nature, and not be thrown off the track by every nutshell and mosquito's wing that falls on the rails. Let us rise early and fast, or breakfast, gently and without perturbation; let company come and let company go, let bells ring and the children cry, - determined to make a day of it.
Time is but the stream i go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how swallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.
