"Thoughts race through one after another; sometimes they are in accord with each other and sometimes they contradict one another. The soul is distracted; the mind sometimes leans one way and sometimes another. By this means, the mind does not allow the establishment of anything permanent and firm in itself. So, gather your scattered children together into one - as a shepard gathers his flock, or as a magnifying glass gathers the dispersed rays of the sun - and direct them inward."

"Endurance of pain, in the name of wisdom and justice, to secure order for our own future comfort and the comfort of our family and friends, is courage. On the other hand, to leave things lying in confusion around us; to let alien forces come into our domain and encamp there in insolent defiance of ourselves and our friends, is a shameful confession that things are stronger than we. To be thus conquered by dead material things is as ignominious a defeat as can come to a man. The man who can be conquered by things is a coward in the strict ethical sense of the term; that is, he lacks the strength of will to bear the incidental pains which his personal and social interests put upon him."
