I can give you a spirit love, i have given you this long, long time; but not embodied passion. See, you are a nun. I have given you what i would give a holy nun...In all our relations no body enters.

I said there was nothing so convincing to an indian as a general massacre. If he could not approve of the massacre, i said the next surest thing for an indian was soap and education. Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run; because a half-massacred indian may recover, but if you educate him and wash him, it is bound to finish him some time or other.
There is no such thing as maturity. There is instead an ever-evolving process of maturing. Because when there is a maturity, there is a conclusion and a cessation. Thats the end.

You continue to learn more and more about yourself every day.
There are some simple maxims which i think might be commended to writers of expository prose. First: never use a long word if a short word will do. So, if you want to make a statement with a great many qualifications, put some of the qualifications in separate sentences. Third: do not let the beginning of your sentence lead the reader to an expectation which is contradicted by the end.
