quotes
An inventor is simply a person who doesn't take his education too seriously. You see, from the time a person is six years old until he graduates form college he has to take three or four examinations a year. If he flunks once, he is out. But an inventor is almost always failing. He tries and fails maybe a thousand times. It he succeeds once then he's in. These two things are diametrically opposite. We often say that the biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work.

- Kettering, Charles F.
The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.

- Florence Shinn
Is not the whole world a vast house of assignation to which the filing system has been lost?

- Quentin Crisp
DUTY, n. That which sternly impels us in the direction of profit, along the line of desire. Sir Lavender Portwine, in favor at court, Was wroth at his master, who'd kissed Lady Port. His anger provoked him to take the king's head, But duty prevailed, and he took the king's bread, Instead. G.J.

- Ambrose Bierce
There are four types of men in this world: 1. The man who knows, and knows that he knows; he is wise, so consult him. 2. The man who knows, but doesn't know that he knows; help him not forget what he knows. 3. The man who knows not, and knows that he knows not; teach him. 4. Finally, there is the man who knows not but pretends that he knows; he is a fool, so avoid him.

- Gabirol, Ibn
It was never shameful to learn from any teacher things that are useful to know.

- Leon Battista Alberti
in the service of Caesar, everything is legitimate.

- Pierre Corrielle
It's very hard to take yourself too seriously when you look at the world from outer space.

- Thomas K. Mattingly II
There is only one way to come into this world; there are too many ways to leave it.

- Harington, Donald
It's interesting, on your second day of existence, to realize that your father is going to blame all the future failures of his life on you.

- Josh Lieb
There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either.

- Robert Graves
I say statecraft is soulcraft. Just as all education is moral education because learning conditions conduct, most legislation is moral legislations because it conditions the action and the thought of the nation in broad and important spheres in life.

- Will, George F.
In the faces of men and women I see God, and in my own face in the glass, I find letters from God dropped in the street, and every one is signed by God's name. And I leave them where they are, for I know that wherever I go, others will punctually come for ever and ever.

- Whitman, Walt
God prepares great men for great tasks by great trials.

- Gressett, J. K.
The proud man counts his newspaper clippings, the humble man his blessings.

- Sheen, Fulton John
People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest.

- Hermann Hesse
The great critic must be a philosopher, for from philosophy he will learn serenity, impartiality, and the transitoriness of human things.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
Moral of the Work. In war: resolution. In defeat: defiance. In victory: magnanimity. In peace: goodwill.

- Churchill, Winston
The ultimate security is your understanding of reality.

- H. Stanley Judd
Reading is equivalent to thinking with someone else's head instead of with one's own.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
