1 I am no more lonely than the north star,or the south wind,or an april shower,or a January thaw,or the first spider in a new house. 2 In the long run men hit only what they aim at ;therefore,though they should fail immediately they had better aim at something higher. 3 Man want a home,a place of warmth,or comfort,first of warmth,then the warmth of the affections. 4 I have learned that the swiftest traveler is he that goes afoot. 5 Above all,as i have implied,the man who alone can start today;but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready and it may be a long time before they get off. 6 Do not stay to be a overseer of the poor,but endeavor to become one of the worthies of the world. 7 Morning is when i am awake and there is a dawn in me. 8 Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations. 9 A man thinking or working is always alone;let him be where he will. 10 If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
