Edward Everett Hale’s 5 most popular quotes

  • If you have accomplished all that you have planned for yourself, you have not planned enough.
  • Life seeks life and loves life. The opening of a catkin of a willow, in the flight of the butterfly, in the chirping of a tree-toad or the sweep of an eagle – my life loves to see how others live, exults in their joy, and so far is partner in their great concern.
  • Wise anger is like fire from a flint: there is great ado to get it out; and when it does come, it is out again immediately.
  • The great event of history is in the great miracle of life: when, to a paralyzed world, Jesus Christ said, ‘Take up your bed and walk,’ and at his voice, that world obeyed. The victory of life over death!
  • I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.
