three quotes for tuesday

Language is the archives of history.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher (1803-1882)

I may be a despicable person, but when Truth speaks through me I am invincible.
-Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)

It is said that a rogue does not look you in the face, neither does an honest man look at you as if he had his reputation to establish. I have seen some who did not know when to turn aside their eyes in meeting yours.
A truly confident and magnanimous spirit is wiser than to contend for the mastery in such encounters.

-Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)
