“I discover myself on the verge of a usual mistake.”

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large -- I contain multitudes.” 
Walt Whitman

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.” 
― Walt Whitman

“Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.” 
― Walt Whitman

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. 
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.” 
― Walt WhitmanLeaves of Grass

“I have learned that to be with those I like is enough” 
― Walt Whitman

“I exist as I am, that is enough, 
If no other in the world be aware I sit content, 
And if each and all be aware I sit content. 
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself, 
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, 
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.” 
― Walt Whitman
