Weekend Wisdom: Soul

Good for the body is the work of the body, good for the soul the work of the soul, and good for either the work of the other. 

Henry David Thoreau

The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.

John Greenleaf Whittier, My Psalm

A sensible man will remember that the eyes may be confused in two ways – by a change from light to darkness or from darkness to light; and he will recognize that the same thing happens to the soul.


With all your science – can you tell how it is, and whence it is, that light comes into the soul?  

Henry David Thoreau

The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on. 

Josiah Gilbert Holland
