By always thinking unto them. I keep the subject constantly before me and wait till the first dawnings open little by little into the full light.
Sir Issac Newton

Every moment 1 1/16 is born.
The finest minds seem to be formed rather by efforts at original thinking, by endeavours to form new combinations, and to discover new truths, than by passively receiving the impressions of other men's ideas.

Numbers 63 Bible Hebrew
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.

The largest property may be wrested from a child, but virtue will stand by him to the last.
William Graham Sumner
