"Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no need of change." "We should strive to welcome change and challenges, because they are what help us grow. With out them we grow weak like the Eloi in comfort and security. We need to constantly be challenging ourselves in order to strengthen our character and increase our intelligence. " "It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning." "Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life." "It is a law of nature we overlook, that intellectual versatility is the compensation for change, danger, and trouble. An animal perfectly in harmony with its environment is a perfect mechanism. Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change. Only those animals partake of intelligence that have a huge variety of needs and dangers." "And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers - shriveled now, and brown and flat and brittle - to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of men." "Very simple was my explanation, and plausible enough---as most wrong theories are!" "Face this world. Learn its ways, watch it, be careful of too hasty guesses at its meaning. In the end you will find clues to it all."
