It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
To be of use to the world is the only way to be happy.
Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.
There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.
The salvation of the world is in man's suffering.
I was cut off from the world. There was no one to confuse or torment me, and I was forced to become original.

Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.
As in an explosion, I would erupt with all the wonderful things I saw and understood in this world.
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
He has not lived badly whose birth and death has been unnoticed by the world.
What is this world that is hastening me toward I know not what, viewing me with contempt?
