14.

MAGNITUDE, n. Size. Magnitude being purely relative, nothing is large and nothing small. If everything in the universe were increased in bulk one thousand diameters nothing would be any larger than it was before, but if one thing remain unchanged all the others would be larger than they had been. To an understanding familiar with the relativity of magnitude and distance the spaces and masses of the astronomer would be no more impressive than those of the microscopist. For anything we know to the contrary, the visible universe may be a small part of an atom, with its component ions, floating in the life- fluid (luminiferous ether) of some animal. Possibly the wee creatures peopling the corpuscles of our own blood are overcome with the proper emotion when contemplating the unthinkable distance from one of these to another.

- Ambrose Bierce
15.

The greatest delight is to mark one's enemy, prepare everything, avenge oneself thoroughly, and then go to sleep.

- Joseph Stalin
16.

17.

Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know men.

- Confucius
18.

It is not growing like a tree in bulk doth make man better be; Or standing long an oak, three hundred year, To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere, A lily of a day is fairer in May Although it fall and die that night, It was the plant of flower and light, In small proportions we just beauties see; And in short measures, life may perfect be.

- Benjamin Johnson
19.

I have not failed. I've just found 10, 000 ways that won't work.

- Edison, Thomas A.
20.

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward.
