I've always liked putting things in their places. I think it's my only true calling. By ordering things I create and understand at the same time... Ordering is finding the best form.

The Passion According to G.H.
Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not understood.
The whole order of things is as outrageous as any miracle which could presume to violate it
Large organization is loose organization. Nay, it would be almost as true to say that organization is always disorganization
Watch out for the fellow who talks about putting things in order! Putting things in order always means getting other people under your control
Order means light and peace, inward liberty and free command over one's self; order is power
Order is man's greatest need, and his true well-being
Good order is the foundation of all good things
When virtue is lost, benevolence appears, when benevolence is lost right conduct appears, when right conduct is lost, expedience appears. Expediency is the mere shadow of right and truth; it is the beginning of disorder
Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
