For man is man and master of his fate.
Science moves, but slowly slowly, creeping on from
point to point.
Earn well the thrifty months, nor wed
Raw Haste, half-sister to Delay.
It is certain because it is impossible.
Pennies don't fall from heaven. They have to be earned on earth.
Seek not to know who said this or that, but take note of what has been said.
We are none of us infallible - not even the youngest of us.
We are, after all, professionals.
A wise man will not go out of his way for information.
Our life is frittered away by detail... Simplify, simplify.
Henry David Thoreau
Education...has provided a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
As you get older, you get tired of doing the same things over and over again, so you think Christmas has changed. It hasn't. It's you who has changed.
The best way to make y’self feel better is to get y’hands to workin. When you put y’hands on somethin and make it somethin else, that will heal you lower places than you cry from.
A. J. Verdelle
They are able who think they are able.
