„A happy man or woman is a better thing to find than a five-pound note.“

— Robert Louis Stevenson
Context: A happy man or woman is a better thing to find than a five-pound note. He or she is a radiating focus of goodwill; and their entrance into a room is as though another candle had been lighted. We need not care whether they could prove the forty-seventh proposition; they do a better thing than that, they practically demonstrate the great Theorem of the Liveableness of Life. An Apology for Idlers.

„Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.“

— Robert Louis Stevenson
Context: Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be; Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill. Bk. I, Requiem (the final sentence was used on Stevenson's Gravestone).

„In real life, help is given out of friendship, or it is not valued; it is received from the hand of friendship, or it is resented.“

— Robert Louis Stevenson
Context: We should wipe two words from our vocabulary: gratitude and charity. In real life, help is given out of friendship, or it is not valued; it is received from the hand of friendship, or it is resented. Ch. IX, Beggars.

„Fiction is to the grown man what play is to the child“

— Robert Louis Stevenson
Context: Fiction is to the grown man what play is to the child; it is there that he changes the atmosphere and tenor of his life. A Gossip on Romance, printed in Longman's Magazine (November 1882).

„All who have meant good work with their whole hearts, have done good work, although they may die before they have the time to sign it. Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind.“

— Robert Louis Stevenson
Context: All who have meant good work with their whole hearts, have done good work, although they may die before they have the time to sign it. Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind. And even if death catch people, like an open pitfall, and in mid-career, laying out vast projects, and planning monstrous foundations, flushed with hope, and their mouths full of boastful language, they should be at once tripped up and silenced: is there not something brave and spirited in such a termination? and does not life go down with a better grace, foaming in full body over a precipice, than miserably straggling to an end in sandy deltas? 316.
