Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.

Miyamoto Musashi

Miyamoto Musashi was a 17th-century Japanese samurai, artist, and writer known for his undefeated fighting record and philosophical work. After retiring from dueling, the swordsman turned to his community, mentoring students and sharing wisdom through his writing. This quote is part of the “Dokkōdō,” a short work written just before his death, which lays out tenets for an honest and simple life. His words here encourage us to extend our compassion outward, and find meaning in life by helping others.

Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

Oscar Wilde

Droll yet poignant, this line uttered by Mr. Dumby, a character created by Oscar Wilde for his 1892 play “Lady Windermere’s Fan,” expresses the value of learning from our errors. Remembered for his witty epigraphs as much as his groundbreaking satirical works, Wilde wrote of the follies and foibles of the upper class in Victorian England, and often brought his characters redemption through a hard-earned lesson. The Irish playwright reminds us that we all mess up from time to time, but we can extract valuable wisdom from those mistakes.

The soul would have no rainbow, had the eyes no tears.

John Vance Cheney

Writer and librarian John Vance Cheney often chose nature as his muse. Here he suggests that sadness, like rain, is a normal part of life, and just as a storm gives way to clearer skies, a good cry is often followed by a period of greater clarity. Cheney believed passing through sadness could engender a beautiful opening and expression of the soul, like a rainbow after a storm. This quote is reflective of much of Cheney’s creative writing, which often succinctly draws the reader's attention to the wonders of the natural world and their parallels and reverberations within the human spirit.
