Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn?

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

Do not be too timid and squeamish about actions. All life is an experiment.

Do not be timid and squeamish about your actions; all life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.

Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with truth.
