Herman Melville   Category: Cause

From without no wonderful effect is wrought within ourselves unless some interior responding wonder meets it.
Herman Melville   Category: Effect

Better sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunken Christian.
Herman Melville   Category: Alcohol

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Herman Melville   Category: Imitation

They talk of the dignity of work. Bosh. The dignity is in leisure.
Herman Melville   Category: Leisure

The eyes are the gateway to the soul.
Herman Melville   Category: Eyes

Herman Melville   Category: Book

Hope is the struggle of the soul breaking loose from what is perishable and attesting her eternity
Herman Melville   Category: Hope

He who has never failed somewhere ... that man can not be great.
Herman Melville   Category: Factory

None but a good man is really a living man and the more good any man does the more he really lives. All the rest is death or belongs to it.
