Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.Henry David Thoreau
I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can't get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That's in friendship, that's a deal, that's a commitment. Don't give me paper - I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that's for life.Jerry Lewis
There are things which a man is afraid to tell even to himself, and every decent man has a number of such things stored away in his mind.Fyodor Dostoevsky
