It is important for us as a people to be united, but inorder to do so we must be independant, such as a tree may stand alone, but many make up an impenetrable forest. We should be as trees, strong and independant, yet united, to be even stronger.

Man is his own star
to live deep
the last of conformity and consitstancy
a zigzag line of a hundred tacks
Obeying the Almighty effort
in solitude
never about consequences

every man has a consience
one HONEST man
they all are his
their will

what is it but a tradition
of conformity and consitancy
the majority rule
life is frittered away by detail
the Nation
it is always ancient virtue

Whoso to be a man must be a non conformist

We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake
to live deliberatly
by an infinite expectation of dawn.
the eye was placed where one ray should fall,
these are the voices we hear in solitude,
the teach us to abide by our spontaneous impression.
We love it and pay it homage.

One tendancy unites us all.
For of one will, the actions will be harmonious.
walls of solid stone
We will breathe after our own fashion
Why should we knock under and go with the stream?
Every man is his own cause,
To be great is to be misunderstood

Let a man know his worth
a stone
a stone wall
the mountains

legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others
wit patriarchs of the infant world

No uncorrupted man may fear
The pure in hear need no lawyers
them that fear not light will surely praise it
evil mixed itself with good
we called upon to help our good people
life is God's most precious gift
no principle
may justify the taking of it

I imagine they hate us
the last martians
Whoso to be a man must also be a non conformist
the reward of which was entirley my own

Because it is my Name!
Leave me my name.
We're in a terrible predicament.
To be great is to be misunderstood.
