The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.
Do or do not... there is no try.
Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.
G. K. Chesterton
(May 29, 1874 - June 14, 1936)
Speech is conveniently located midway between thought and action, where it often substitutes for both
John Andrew Holmes
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats
Henry Louis Mencken
