Who dares To say that he alone has found the truth?
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
To teach well is to believe in what and whom you teach.
Not what we would, but what we must
Makes up the sum of living;
Heaven is both more and less than just
In taking and in giving.
Richard Henry Stoddard
I have never known a man who was sensual in his youth, who was high-minded when old.
I cannot afford to waste my time making money.
The books that help you the most are those which make you think the most.
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Edwin P Whipple
It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
It is not down in any map, true places never are.
Not failure, but low aim, is crime.
James Russell Lowell
Our ideals are our better selves.
Amos Bronson Alcott
The hero is no braver than the ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The secret of getting things done is to act!
Benjamin O David
Oh, to be home again, home again, home again!
Under the apple-boughs, down by the mill!
James Thomas Fields
Believe me, there exists no such dilemma as that in which a gentleman is placed when he is forced to reply to a blackguard.
Edgar Allan Poe
Her reputation for reading a great deal hung about her like the cloudy envelope of a goddess in an epic
Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. it's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.
