Though wakefulness my domain
In sleep I remain,
For wakefulness is sleep
One shallow and one deep.
The greatest thing you ever learn is just to love and be
loved in return.
Nat King Cole
Children find everything in nothing; men find nothing in everything.
Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first
associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their
power, which no subsequent connections can supply...
Jane Austen, Mansfield
Winning is not a sometime
thing; it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you
don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the
time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Here lies a most beautiful lady,
Light of step and heart was she:
I think she was the most beautiful lady
That ever was in the West Country.
But beauty vanishes; beauty passes;
However rare, rare it be;
And when I crumble who shall remember
This lady of the West Country?
Education makes a straight ditch of a free meandering brook.
Henry David Thoreau
We must never cease from exploration. And the end of all our
exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for
the first time.
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than
him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
