Kathleen Norris quotes ~
• “Each and every one of us has one obligation, during the bewildered days of our pilgrimage here: the saving of his own soul, and secondarily and incidentally thereby affecting for good such other souls as come under our influence.”
• “In any free society, the conflict between social conformity and individual liberty is permanent, unresolvable, and necessary.”
• “There is no solitude in the world like that of the big city.”
• “In spite of the cost of living, it's still popular.”
• “Over and over again mediocrity is promoted because real worth isn't to be found.”
• “In middle age we are apt to reach the horrifying conclusion that all sorrow, all pain, all passionate regret and loss and bitter disillusionment are self-made.”
• “Changing husbands is only changing troubles.”
• “When you are unhappy, is there anything more maddening than to be told that you should be contented with your lot?”
• “Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.”

Charles Eliot Norton
b. 11-16-1827; Cambridge, MA
d. 10-21-1908

Author, social critic and professor of history of art, Charles Eliot Norton, was considered to be the most cultivated man in the United States by many of his contemporaries. The Charles Eliot Norton Lecture Professorship of Poetry at Harvard University was established in 1925 as an annual lectureship in “poetry in the broadest sense”.

Charles Eliot Norton quotes ~
• “If a war be undertaken... before the resources of peace have been tried and proved vain to secure it, that war has no defense, it is a national crime.”
• “The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent.”

Novalis, Giclee Print

b. 5-2-1772; Oberwiederstedt, Electorate of Saxony, Germany
d. 3-25-1801

Novalis was the pen name for Georg Philipp Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg, a philosopher, mystic and civil engineer closely associated with German Romanticism.

Novalis chose to write much of his work as ‘literary fragments’ - deliberate writings meant to be unfinished.

Novals quotes ~
• “Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.”
• “A character is a completely fashioned will.”
• “I often feel, and ever more deeply I realize, that fate and character are the same conception.”
• “Learning is pleasurable but doing is the height of enjoyment.”
• “Only an artist can interpret the meaning of life.”
• “Philosophy is properly home-sickness; the wish to be everywhere at home.”
• “Where children are, there is the golden age.”
