  • I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light.
    • Not knowing (1869).
  • That which we look on with unselfish love
    And true humility is surely ours,
    Even as a lake looks at the stars above
    And makes within itself a heaven of stars.
    • Ownership, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
