"But I don't want to go among mad people," said Alice. "Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here."
~ Lewis Carroll (January 27, 1832 - January 14, 1898)
When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
~ Jacob Riis (May 03, 1849 - March 26, 1914)
Man lives consciously for himself, but is an unconscious instrument in the attainment of the historic, universal, aims of humanity.
~ Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy (September 09, 1828 - November 20, 1910)
