„Time is the coin of your life. You spend it. Do not allow others to spend it for you.“

—  Carl Sandburg

Declaration at his 85th birthday party (6 January 1963), as quoted in The Best of Ralph McGill : Selected Columns (1980) by Ralph McGill, edited by Michael Strickland, Harry Davis, and Jeff Strickland, p. 82
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
As quoted without source in The School Musician Director and Teacher Vol. 43 (1971) by the American School Band Directors' Association

„A baby is God's opinion that life should go on.“

—  Carl Sandburg, kniha Remembrance Rock

Remembrance Rock (1948), Ch. 2, p. 7
Kontext: A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. A book that does nothing to you is dead. A baby, whether it does anything to you, represents life. If a bad fire should break out in this house and I had my choice of saving the library or the babies, I would save what is alive. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo plants, don't compare with a newborn baby in the number and ingenuity of coils and springs, in the flow and change of chemical solutions, in timing devices and interrelated parts that are irreplaceable. A baby is very modern. Yet it is also the oldest of the ancients. A baby doesn't know he is a hoary and venerable antique — but he is. Before man learned how to make an alphabet, how to make a wheel, how to make a fire, he knew how to make a baby — with the great help of woman, and his God and Maker.

„I believe in everything — I am only looking for proofs.“

—  Carl Sandburg

Incidentals (1904); this is sometimes paraphrased: "I am an idealist. I believe in everything — I am only looking for proofs."
Kontext: Back of every mistaken venture and defeat is the laughter of wisdom, if you listen. Every blunder behind us is giving a cheer for us, and only for those who were willing to fail are the dangers and splendors of life. To be a good loser is to learn how to win. I was sure there are ten men in me and I do not know or understand one of them. I could safely declare, I am an idealist. A Parisian cynic says "I believe in nothing. I am looking for clues." My statement would be : I believe in everything — I am only looking for proofs.

„I am the people — the mob — the crowd — the mass.“

—  Carl Sandburg

"I Am the People, the Mob" (1916)
Kontext: I am the people — the mob — the crowd — the mass.
Do you know that all the great work of the world is done through me?

„Yesterday is done. Tomorrow never comes. Today is here. If you don't know what to do, sit still and listen.“

—  Carl Sandburg

Incidentals (1904)
Kontext: Yesterday is done. Tomorrow never comes. Today is here. If you don't know what to do, sit still and listen. You may hear something. Nobody knows.
We may pull apart the petals of a rose or make chemical analysis of its perfume, but the mystic beauty of its form and odor is still a secret, locked in to where we have no keys.

„There are men who can't be bought.“

—  Carl Sandburg

"The People Will Live On" (1936)
Kontext: Man is a long time coming.
Man will yet win.
Brother may yet line up with brother:
This old anvil laughs at many broken hammers.
There are men who can't be bought.

„Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.“

—  Carl Sandburg

"Under the Harvest Moon" (1916)
Kontext: Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.

„Man is a long time coming.
Man will yet win.“

Man will yet win.
Brother may yet line up with brother:

„The people will live on.
The learning and blundering people will live on.“

—  Carl Sandburg

"The People, Yes" (1936)
Kontext: The people will live on.
The learning and blundering people will live on.
They will be tricked and sold and again sold.
And go back to the nourishing earth for rootholds.
