Thomas Traherne
Quotations


The soul is made for action, and cannot rest till it be employed. Idleness is its rust. Unless it will up and think and taste and see, all is in vain.

Is it not strange, that an infant should be heir of the whole world, and see those mysteries which the books of the learned never unfold?

More company increases happiness, but does not lighten or diminish misery.

Happiness was not made to be boasted, but enjoyed. Therefore tho' others count me miserable, I will not believe them if I know and feel myself to be happy; nor fear them.

Certainly Adam in Paradise had not more sweet and curious apprehensions of the world, than I when I was a child.

Had we not loved ourselves at all, we could never have been obliged to love anything. So that self-love is the basis of all love.

You never know yourself till you know more than your body.
