We do not learn much from learned books, but from true, sincere, human books, from frank and honest biographies.
...Henry David Thoreau
It is the vice of our public speaking that it has not abandonment. Somewhere, not only every orator but every man should let out all the length of all the reins; should find or make a frank and hearty expression of what force and meaning is in him.
...Ralph Waldo Emerson
