William Henry Channing : To live content with small means; to seek
elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study
hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars
and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all
cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through
the common. This is to be my symphony.
