Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.

I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize.
The first is gentleness;

be frugal and you can be generous;
avoid putting yourself before others
and you can become a leader among men.

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day,

shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time,
he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
