Glory is the child of peril.
A man’s opinion of danger varies at different times according to his animal spirits, and he is actuated by considerations which he dares not avow.
Nature I’ll court in her sequestered haunts, by mountain, meadow, streamlet, grove, or cell; where the poised lark his evening ditty chaunts, and health, and peace, and contemplation dwell.
Some men are wise, and some are otherwise.
The blast that blows loudest is soonest overblown.
