James, William

Thoreau, Henry David

While he was not as dumb as an ox, he was not any smarter either.
Thurber, James

Nathaniel Emmons

48.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconcious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character
Covey, Stephen R.

49.
The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.
Angelou, Maya
