“A wife is property that one acquires by contract, she is transferable, because possession of her requires title; in fact, woman is, so to speak, only mans appendage; consequently, slice, cut, clip her, you have all rights to her.”

“There is, however, this consolation to the most way-worn traveler, upon the dustiest road, that the path his feet describe is so perfectly symbolical of human life,now climbing the hills, now descending into the vales. From the summits he beholds the heavens and the horizon, from the vales he looks up to the heights again. He is treading his old lessons still, and though he may be very weary and travel-worn, it is yet sincere experience.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.”

So mixed in him that nature might stand up
And say to all the world This was a man.”
