Whoever Preserves A Single Thought Uncorrupted By Any Concession To The Will Of Othe

HomeFortune CookiesMiscellaneous Collections

Whoever preserves a single thought uncorrupted by any concession to the
will of others, whoever brings into reality a matchstick or a patch of
garden made in the image of his thought -- he, and to that extent, is
a man, and that extent is the sole measure of his virtue. They made no
concessions. This (the valley) is the measure of what they preserved
and what they are.
