The very purpose of marriage is restraint and sublimation of the sexual passion. If there

Physical education should have as much place in the curriculum as mental training.
If man will only realize that it is unmanly to obey laws that are unjust, no man's tyranny will
enslave him. This is the key to self- and home-rule.
Let us all be brave enough to die the death of a martyr, but let no one lust for martyrdom.

Whenever I see an erring man, I say to myself: "I have also erred;" when I see a lustful man,
I say to myself: "So was I once;" and in this way I feel kinship with everyone in the world and

Man will ever remain imperfect, and it will always be his part to try to be perfect. Perfection
in love or non-possession will remain an unattainable ideal as long as we are alive, but
towards which we must ceaselessly strive.
